Men of To­mor­row De­bonair Ball

South Florida Times - - METRO -

More than 600 young men in Palm Beach County have par­tic­i­pated in The Men of To­mor­row (MOT) pro­gram dur­ing its 30 years of ex­is­tence. The most re­cent group was pre­sented to fam­ily and friends dur­ing the an­nual De­bonair Ball on May 26 at the Palm Beach Gar­dens Mar­riott.

The MOT or­ga­ni­za­tion was founded by the na­tional Al­pha Phi Al­pha Fra­ter­nity, Inc., and the Palm Beach County-based Delta Delta Lambda chap­ter oper­ates the Palm Beach County pro­gram, which launched in 1988.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion fo­cuses its at­ten­tion of young men of African de­scent and their im­por­tance to so­ci­ety. Dur­ing their par­tic­i­pa­tion in MOT, the young men are ex­posed to some of the most suc­cess­ful men in Palm Beach. The multi-year pro­gram for young men in grades 9 through 12 pushes col­lege and em­pha­sizes com­mu­nity ser­vice, faith and em­pow­er­ment.
