Mr. Elisha Reaves teaches members about becoming men by moving past stereotypes. Society has a way of influencing young boys to believe that there is only one way to behave “like a man”. In other words, you are only considered a man by your wealth, power and status. Today’s Passport to Manhood lesson dealt with challenging these stereotypes and not becoming defined by them. Once young men recognize their power to move beyond stereotypes, they will no longer be limited to society’s boundaries. Elisha’s group began a round table discussion by listing the most common stereotypes about young men and how they were false. Thomas, a participant of the Passport to Manhood program ended the discussion by speaking on the positive qualities of responsible men.

Passport to Manhood consists of 14 sessions, each concentrating on a specific aspect of character and manhood through highly interactive activities. Each Club participant receives his own “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth. The program includes a service project where boys learn the importance of giving back to the community. Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions and activities that reinforce character, leadership and positive behavior.
