Passport to Manhood- 4.13.18

Boys & Girls Club held its annual Passport to Manhood Celebratory Luncheon on Friday, April 13 at the City Club of Baton Rouge. The luncheon is an opportunity to celebrate the Club members who have completed the Passport to Manhood development program and allow the Club members to meet and socialize with successful business men from throughout the Baton Rouge Community. Baton Rouge Chief of Police Murphy Paul, Jr. spoke at the attendees at the luncheon. This all-male luncheon celebrates the graduation of Club members from the Passport to Manhood program, a 16-week curriculum that focuses on empowering male Club members to be the best person they can be. This luncheon provides an opportunity for businessmen in our community to engage youth and influence the choices they make as a young adult. “Passport 2 Manhood is my favorite B&G Club program,” said Brent Cobb, Event Committee Chair. “ It instills in Club members the same character traits and life skills I hope to impart on my son. I love how the program uses highly interactive sessions to teach the importance of personal responsibility, leadership, value-based reasoning, effective communication and civic duty. However, what I love most about the program is how it forms a foundation for Club members to build-on during their journey to manhood by empowering them with the tools and knowledge everyone needs to succeed in life.” The 2018 Passport to Manhood Committee Includes Brent, Event Chair, Gibbons Addison, Ryan Aldridge, Ryan Allen, Richard Born, Judge Curtis Calloway, Charlie Davis, Aaron Lambert, Danny McConnell, John McDermott, and Thomas Spradley.
