The Gentleman's beginnings
This is where Our Story begins
Young men in the inner city have to balance the identity between the neighborhood culture of the “G” and their identity with being a Gentleman and getting out into the real world. Unfortunately, until these Gentlemen receive an acceptance to college or a scholarship, they’re stuck in the inner city. Growing up in this environment, struggle and opportunity go hand in hand—they’ve learned a lot about balancing survival and academics. A lot of what they’ve learned can be utilized in the real world: it just has to be refined. They can only get that refinement when they step out of the inner city and see things from a different perspective. This is where the Gentlemen’s Retreat comes in.
