Georgetown County Boys Mentor Group
GEORGETOWN COUNTY BOYS MENTOR GROUP
Georgetown County Boys Mentor Group is the vision of Mr. Randolph Ford, Georgetown County businessman. The three pillars of the organization are Character, Commitment and Career. Using these three elements, we hope to raise the self- esteem levels of young men and highlight the importance of good character, which is the foundation of commitment and career. Having students meet and interact with successful men from the community on a weekly basis is the cornerstone of the vision.
