TOGETHER, LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE
There comes a time in a child's life when they will face moments of growth and transition. These are times best navigated with the guidance and support of someone they can trust. But the need for positive direction is even greater for a child without a solid support system. Poverty, abuse, single-parent households, or other debilitating family circumstances may burden these children. We strive to empower these children through our programs at Lowcountry Youth Services. Without the support of a mentor or positive adult role model, these children may grow up to perpetuate the same struggles and issues as they transition into adulthood.
But with your help, we can change that. The demand for our services exceeds our resources, and your donation can make a real difference in a young person's life. Lowcountry Youth Services is funded by organizations and individuals like you who believe in the importance and impact of our work in the community. Your pledge allows us to expand and reach more children throughout the Tri-County Area. Your donation will assist in giving these children a chance at success, defying the odds by achieving a high school or college diploma instead of a criminal record. Regardless of the size of your donation, we cannot thank you enough for considering donating to our program. Let's ignite change and focus on our children's character, leadership, and social development together.

DGC has helped my son with manners, helping maintain personal hygiene, starting to think about the future of what he wants to do, helped him learn time management skills & most importantly become the young man he is today.
We realized that raising 2 sons in today's world was more than we could handle on our own. When we heard about The Distinguished Gentlemen's Club, we knew this would be a great opportunity to have some Positive Male Role Models for our sons and to have these Mentors come alongside us in giving our son's the guidance they need to have a bright future.
I have had the privilege of witnessing the positive change Perry and his programs have made, and continue to make in the lives of our young people. I cannot count the number of stories my wife ( a retired Berkeley County School teacher) and daughters (current Berkeley County School teachers) relayed to me about the changes they witnessed in what were troubled young men after they became involved with Officer Perry
Since Joshua has been in DGC, we have seen a tremendous change in him. He thinks before acting. He takes pride in his grades and his appearance. His grades have gone from failing to As and Bs.
Ricardo Perry enthusiasm and tireless commitment to improving the lives of our young men speaks volumes.
Ricardo Perry has been more than just a mentor and role model. He is a constant stable figure that we all look forward to in life. He is the driving force behind most good decisions that we make. Without him there would be no foundation or backbone for the organization to grow from.
I enrolled my son in DGC for him to meet people, build his self-esteem & his confidence. I also wanted my son to have male role models where he could learn how to grow and become a man of greatness in the future.
It’s a great pleasure the joy my son receives having a mentor he can talk to about anything and enjoys spending all day with. Without this group and the great mentor he has, all I can say is, I'm grateful. DGC was just what my son needed.
“Lowcountry Youth Services is a difference-maker because they use their talents and skills to not only directly serve an area of great importance but inspire others to do so as well. Lowcountry Youth Services sees in young people what in many cases they do not see themselves; talent, skills, value, and an amazing hope and enthusiasm for their future.”
I enrolled my son so he can be around positive kids. Kids whose parents want a grounded village for their child to be a part of. I enrolled him so he can see what black male excellence can do.
Lowcountry Youth Services is an incredible asset to the City of Hanahan through its work with youth services through their police department. We are fortunate that they have now expanded his reach through the Exchange Program by providing additional mentoring and support services to young males with involvement in the juvenile justice system in Berkeley County.
