School: South Atlanta School of Law and Social Justice
Project: B.M.H. (Boys Making History)
l of Mr. McKnight’s project is to realize the academic and social potential of young men who have demonstrated high academic achievement, but are failing or underperforming. Specifically, the students in the program will return to being on-track to graduate and positioned for college. This will be accomplished through Outward Bound Leadership Training sessions, monthly physical group challenges, facilitated personal and group reflection and ongoing academic counseling, culminating in an end-of-the-year backpacking trip.
