Students in hamilton county.

A group of middle and high school aged boys stayed busy and productive during their time away from school.

The lessons they learned, and the mentors they met could serve them well for the rest of their lives.

We find out all about the boys to men program in tonight's edition of "what's right with our schools".

Natural sound: all of this right now is not just for our benefit.

It's for everybody's benefit.

So when y'all go back to school, y'all have learned something.

Daniel: boyz to men program is a christian, based on a christian experience and a camp to help our young man develop and grow with god.

Not only with god but to grow with us.

So that way we can get them out of the streets and help them become better, more young men.

Natural sound: one, two, three!

Daniel: so the fall break camp even though we have a week for fall break, our goal is as boys to men, as my goal is not to let the kids stay at home and be a couch potato playing video games.

I would like for our young man to come out and participate, what they are doing right now and we talk about things.

Elijah: me coming here i plan to learning things that can help me in the future.

And like i'm planning on doing great things.

And i just can't do that by myself.

I need older man to help me get to where i want to be.

Jordan: we do a lot of things and it's not just for the fun activities.

It's not just for the food, it's to learn and become a man.

To put all the childish things away.

Natural sound: who feels... like there is someone else who is responsible for you being successful?

Daniel: we have some kids who want to be entrepreneurs.

We have a kid who wants to be a neurologist.

They want to be something different.

And with this camp is helping them grow... natural sound: lift!

Daniel: ...spiritually mentally and physically.

Natural sound: i am very excited about the opportunity that we have here.

Josh: partnering with the beth will allow the boys to men program to expand and impact that it has had in the chattanooga community.

Book mccray has done an outstanding job for years engaging boys in the community, engaging partners in the community and we are really excited to build on that.

And to provide even more opportunities for growth and expansion and programming as they partner with the bill.
