**EmPowered For Excellence**
This dynamic mentoring and spiritual development program is designed for young men, 12 – 21 years, who seek to pursue a life of excellence and Godly success despite the difficulties of current situations. It emphasizes self-motivation and developing a sense of personal empowerment on the road to achieving set goals to make dreams come true. The purpose of Sophisticated Gents is to help young men realize that their circumstances do not have to define their progression and purpose.

Hands-on activities, role-playing exercises, targeted field trips, and social outings keep the pace interesting and reinforce lessons learned.
