LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Hundreds of young men enrolled in Jefferson County Public Schools gathered for a day of inspiration on Monday.

The 17th annual Men of Quality lifestyle choices forum at the University of Louisville brought African-American students from sixth grade to high school together to listen to motivational speakers and attend workshops to help them meet their goals.

"Responsible choices, that's what this is all about," said Michael Shoulders Youth Service Center Coordinator for JCPS. "Making responsible choices throughout your life. I know there's going to be some setbacks, but if you get a good foundation, you know, you can always come back to making those good, positive choices."

The program is offered in various middle and high schools throughout JCPS.

Participating students meet mentors, attend regular meetings and gather for special programs.
