Last Year we started a Boys Book Club at our school with myself and one of our Math Teachers Sponsoring it. It was a huge success, we read several books about real world situations that some of our kids were going to. We then partnered with our local battered womens shelter, to raise awarness and money for it. While our students were not able to meet any of the women or kids living in the facility for safety reasons they did get to meet with Police Officers and Social Workers who work with the families. This was a great opportunity for our boys who may or may not have father figures in their lives. It showed them the value in respecting women.
