Many of my students let their insecurities cause them to miss out on opportunities. My students applied for summer jobs and internships but only chose sites where they could move furniture or pull weeds. None of them opted to work indoors in a business environment. They expressed reservations about the attire and working in unfamiliar territory. Some of the young men in the school have not had an adult male show them the proper way to tie a neck tie or dress appropriately for any and every occasion. I chose boy's golf shirts to match with their current uniform khaki pants to support a business casual attire day for the students. Again, we can't let our student's insecurities allow them to miss out on opportunitities. The students will have a learning experience from the Sharp Dressed Man organization which they will then in turn teach other students about the art of being well dressed. The idea is to pay it forward and teach others at school, as well as males in their family, to dress for success. We have aspirations of a father/ son luncheon culminating event in the future post this activity.
