the project

Gentlemen Canvas is a faith-based summer intensive program designed to inspire young men on a journey of personal growth, character development, and spiritual exploration. The program, "Canvas of Character," aims to equip participants with valuable life skills while fostering camaraderie and self-discovery. Gentlemen’s Canvas will embody Character Development Workshops, Leadership Training, Artistic Expression Sessions, Community Engagement Projects, and Mentorship programs. Grounded in the principles of faith, this program seeks to cultivate young gentlemen who embody virtues rooted in scripture.

*"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."* - Jeremiah 29:11
