On Valentine's Day, lovers and spouses across the world give each other gifts. But we're about to tell you about a group of young men who gave their gifts to kids in need.
This story is also about their mentor, who in turn got to see the product of his gift.
"We've got a lot of poverty, single-income parents, low-income neighborhoods," Horace Dukes says of the kids in his Dukes Foundation program, "but what we say is, 'It's not where you are; it's where you're going to.'"
A teacher in the Atlanta school system, Horace Dukes started the Dukes Foundation in 2003 as a mentorship program for at-risk youth. Now nine years in, he has 60 kids under his wing and focused on the future.
"He takes us, he molds us into young and successful young men," says current student Marcus Johnson.
Adds fellow student Javier Gober, currently in 9th grade, "It's like a fraternity in a way, like a brotherhood, like a small bond between each other."
