Listen to the videos and be inspired by Mrs. Jackson's Young Men of Honor.
It takes heart and the right tools to mind the gold in our children, every child is a precious jewel to us and deserves every chance to be productive. Only If we dig deep enough, we will find the love and value that our children have. Despite the socio-economic and environmental challenges, they face every day, these young men believe they can be successful.
The Young Men of Honor meet once a week after school. Young men must come to the program meetings “dressed for success” with a white shirt and tie. When they enter the room they recite their motto and creed, and the activity for the afternoon is introduced. The sessions include a motivational guest speaker, a mini-workshop, a field trip, etiquette training, public speaking skills, a presentation on a health issue, or other topics that are relevant to young men.
The purpose of the Young Men of Honor is to prevent them from falling through the cracks of society by becoming the safety net that provides them with the mindset and tools to be productive. The Young Men of Honor educates, motivates, and encourages our youth to take their place as a vital part of the community and bridges the opportunity gaps that prevent them from seeing a pathway to success in Savannah and beyond.

If I had to pick an adjective to explain the role of Young Men of Honor Inc in my life it would grateful. My name is Drequan Chisholm, a recent class of 2022 graduate of Morehouse College. Without Young Men of Honor, I would not be able to type the words in pervious sentence. My story with YMOH started at a very critical point in life. I was a high school freshman with no idea or plan for what my future would look like. My summer with YMOH we tour Morehouse College, that tour was the day that changed my life forever. After that summer trip I decided that I wanted to go to Morehouse necessary and Mr. and Mrs. Jackson made sure that dream would become reality. I gain the entire YMOH family as my village that supported me through the ups and downs. Because of my time with YMOH I started to mentor younger children at a local elementary school in Atlanta, Ga. The work that Mr. and Mrs. Jackson do is a true testament of a Ram in the bush. I am and will always be indebted to Young Men of Honor Incorporated as for them I am a Morehouse Man on mission to lead a life of leadership and service.Drequan Chisholm
