The meet up spot is going to be University Place Library. I am waiting to get the meeting room scheduled. If that falls through we will meet at my house for the first meeting.
The mission of Boys of Freedom is to create lasting friendships with boys of high character, active minds and busy hands, to introduce moral leadership activities and opportunities, to bond and move through life together.
Membership is open to boys aged 9-12.
- Monthly Meetings, two hours in length: Each meeting begins with an opening ceremony that includes prayer and pledge of Allegiance. ( The meet up spot is going to be University Place Library. I am waiting to get the meeting room scheduled. If that falls through we will meet at my house for the first meeting.)
- Reading and discussion of biographies of great men: The boys read one biography per month from the Childhood of Famous Americans series. This meeting also includes a presentation by the advisor on the era in which the famous person lived. There may be an occasional guest speaker as the advisor deems necessary.
- Leadership training and experience: This makes up the other part of the meeting. Basic parliamentary procedure is taught. The advisor gives a short lesson on leadership. Each boy then gives a 5-10 minute presentation on the topic of his choice. For example, cooking, volcanoes, airplanes, piano recitals, Johnny Appleseed, Big Foot, Legos. This helps him develop leadership skills while increasing the feeling of brotherhood in the club.
- Tuition: $5 for supplies. Book cost is not included. There are MANY copies available through the Library system.
We will start with Milton Hershey, Young Chocolatier by M. M. Eboch you can get at Amazon for under $6.00 I do believe.
