Starting today, area young people will have a chance to have fun while learning life and leadership skills this summer.

100 Black Men of Savannah, Inc. in partnership with First Tee of Savannah, Inc. has launched its Pathways to Success Summer Enrichment Institute.

Over the next two weeks 25 to 30 young people ages 10 – 15 will have an opportunity to acquire life skills through educational, legal, health, mentoring, leadership, and economic empowerment programs- all key components of the Savannah 100’s “Mentoring the 100 Way Across a Lifetime.”

The goal of the Institute is motivate young people to seek higher levels of achievement; to expose them to activites rich in cultural information and experiences, and to develop their reading, writing, and leadership skills.

Guided by the Savannah 100 credo, “What They See is What They’ll Be”, students will be equipped for higher educational opportunities and leadership role in their communities. Campers will also be exposed to a variety of cultural and recreational activities, field trips, and educational lectures.

The Pathways to Success Summer Enrichment Institute will be conducted at the First Tee of Savannah/Mary Calder Golf Club, on the campus of International Paper at 1201 West Lathrop Avenue, Savannah, GA.

Thanks in large part to the support of community volunteers, corporate sponsors, and the City of Savannah, there is no cost to campers.
