About

Connections and You, Inc currently has a very comprehensive mentoring program called The Distinguished Gentlemen's Club. We serve children that live in Berkeley, Dorchester and Charleston Counties. We mentor children who have challenges with their behavior, lack of positive character, low self-esteem, and/or academics. Our children are 8 to 17 years old and come from diverse backgrounds. We have bi-weekly meetings where we teach various character traits based on biblical principles. Our program is a reward based program, we take the children on monthly outings for leisure and educational purposes. Each child is assigned one Mentor to monitor their growth in the program. The Mentors stay in contact with the children weekly and serve as a positive role model in their lives. The program is effective because of the consistent dedication of all our volunteers. Many of our children are use to people giving up on them, because of this, when they don't do what is expected of them, we continue to work with them. Showing them a more excellent way. We also need volunteers to assist with fundraising, event planning, administration, graphic design, web design, and more.
