Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County’s Project FACT program hosted its first-ever Passport to Manhood graduation ceremony to celebrate young male Club members and their accomplishments throughout the three-month program. The graduation ceremony took place on Saturday, December 11 from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at John I. Leonard High School 4701 10th Ave N., Greenacres, Fla.
Over 240 Club members from seven Boys & Girls Clubs located throughout Palm Beach County participated in the special graduation ceremony. Each Club member received ties to wear provided by Edward Jones Insurance and walked alongside their father or an important father figure in their lives to
receive a certificate of completion.
In attendance were underwriters Edward Jones Insurance, Nozzle Nolen and Kiwanis Club of Riviera Beach, along with representatives from the Children’s Service Council, United Way of Palm Beach County, Impact 100 and the Palm Beach County School District. Over 75 father figure volunteers from the community will be in attendance as well.
The Project FACT Passport to Manhood program encourages young boys ages 8 to 18 to develop and mature into responsible young men. With this program, young boys engage in a variety of classes and activities that help to reinforce character, leadership and positive behavior.
