The Brothers of Delta Delta Lambda Chapter organized the youth group “Men of Tomorrow” in 1988. The organization focuses its attention of young men of African descent and their importance to our society. The fraternity solicited the assistance of high school counselors, teachers, community leaders and the brotherhood to find young men that met the qualifications set up by the brotherhood.
With the group, the brothers embarked upon a mission that would affect the entire community – a mission of service, scholarship among our youth and a desire to improve the community.
“We believe in the creation of inspired lives; produced by the miracles of hard work. We are not frightened by the challenges of reality, but believe we can change our conception of this world and our place within it. So we work, plan, build and dream in that order. We believe that one must earn the right to dream. Our talent, discipline, and integrity will be our contribution to a new world. Because we believe that we can take this place, this time, this people and make a better place, a better time, and a better people. With God we either find a way or make one.”
Each young man accepted into the organization must meet the qualifications established by the brotherhood:
1. Grade 9-11
2. GPA (grade point average) 2.3 or higher
3. Recommendation from counselor, teacher, minister, or chapter brother
4. Must be of good character
5. Must have parental support of the organization
During the course of the year MOT members must participate in monthly church visitations, educational tutorial program, Project Alpha Youth Symposium, College Prep Workshops, community projects and social activities (bowling, paintball, professional basketball and football games) with the brotherhood. MOT activities are designed to develop the whole person.
The MOT’s and their parents also participate in several community service and fundraising activities. These activities include Paint Your Heart Out, Walk for Babies, Thanksgiving baskets, calendar drive and barbeque dinner.
The Men of Tomorrow are “presented” to the community in a formal, annual “Mr. Debonair Pageant” complete with the regal fanfare worthy of Men of Tomorrow. During the students’ spring break vacation they have the opportunity attend the college fair where they visit various college campuses, speak with admissions officers, attend classes, and get the overall feel of college life.
As a continuous project, Delta Delta Lambda endeavors to empress upon the minds of these young men the importance of educational pursuits in order to improve the quality of their lives and the communities in which each lives.
