I love this program so much! For almost 3 years i had been looking for a mentor for my son and got no response from none of the local fraternities, Boys & Girls club or Big brothers/Big Sister programs. As soon as I contacted SOS they called me and enrolled my son in their program. For the past year that my son has been in the program, I saw nothing but positive changes in his grades, self esteem and our relationship. If you're looking for an excellent program for your son to be in, put him in Strengthening Our Sons male youth leadership program today!!
