My name is Jacoby Waters, I am the Founder, CEO & Executive Director of Young Men of Distinction & Gentlemen of Distinction.
What is the best way to achieve a dream or a goal?
Learn from someone that achieved the same goal or dream, or someone that has more knowledge or expertise in that area than you do.
My step father and grandfather have provided me with knowledge and expertise creating a strong foundation in my life.
I also received great guidance from neighbors – helping to develop my morals and values.
With a strong foundation and great guidance, I achieved several goals and I am continuing my journey toward my dream.
My strong foundation and great guidance received lead to humility and gratitude.
My humility and gratitude provided the inspiration to create Young Men of Distinction with the help of several key collaborators to achieve one goal – provide tools and resources for young men to achieve their goals and dreams.
Currently, Young Men of Distinction will be at Dr. Mary McCleod Bethune Elementary School, Belle Glade Elementary School, Howell L. Watkins Middle School, Forest Hill High School and returning back to John I. Leonard High School.
