Guys with Ties

boys in the club in thier ties

This year Alton Darby Elementary started a “Guys with Ties” program. The program is open to all boys in 3rd grade. Club members meet with their advisors, Jason Alexander and Community Liaison Devin Jordan from Beyond the Game, once a month during their lunch/recess period. The “Guys with Ties” program encourages students to “look good, feel good, do good.” Each meeting covers various topics such as dining etiquette, showing respect to the elderly/females, community service, the importance of saying thank you, handshakes, and more. There are also guest speakers from the community. As a member of this club, the young men are encouraged to wear a shirt and tie to each meeting. This is a unique opportunity to watch the young men grow into leaders in our community.
