Gentlemen’s Quest of Tampa Inc. is dedicated to helping our program participants realize their full potential as students, make positive choices regarding their academics and behavior, and equip them with the skills necessary to become productive citizens after they graduate. To accomplish this mission, we host workshops and activities that will provide students with strategies to be successful in difficult situations. Students attend meetings that are structured and targeted. The academic and behavioral progress of the students are monitored regularly. Throughout this process, their intellectual, emotional, and relational capacity expands by providing key experiences that contribute to their developmental growth.
As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve, we know that the crisis is disproportionately impacting low-income families and communities of color – and the division of equity between the “haves and the have nots” has grown wider. Since the start of the pandemic, GQ worked to creatively support youth most in need. We implemented Zoom and YouTube workshops on goal setting, college preparation, and online safeguards for social media.
Your generous support has allowed GQ to not only survive – but thrive – in our most challenging year to date. With you by our side, GQ will continue providing Tampa Bay’s youth with brighter futures.
“Not only did the Gentlemen’s Quest pay my tuition in school, they provided mentorship and support in the times that I needed them the most.”
“GQ impacted me so much that it made me want to not settle and strive for more in life. The program opened my eyes to so much in life that I’m now actually pursuing my dreams.”
“GQ taught me how to be professional and how to succeed as a black man. Mr.Myrick helped me stay on top of everything from school, to getting accepted into college, to life in general. I learned how to be a leader, manage money, and lead by example.”
