Omega Lamplighter Mentorship Program
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Omega Lamplighter’s mentorship program helps young boys become the best version of themselves.
The Omega program has been in existence for six years to help children get off the streets.
This year, the program welcomes a new class of boys.
“It’s our biggest class, and we’re proud of it,” said Reginald Lecount, Mentor, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.
The main objective of the program is to teach principles rooted in leadership, academic excellence and maturity.
“It takes a village to raise these children here and by working with them at such a young age, we want to make sure we get them started and guide them on the right path,” said Reginald Lecount.
“We always talk about how young men need someone to look up to, and we need to work with them, take control of some guidance – leadership – and that’s what we believe we’re doing,” Reginald said. Lecount.
Memphis police recently reported a 92% increase in youth crime.
To combat crime, the program plans to bring in 40 young men to help the town with its juvenile delinquency.
“We give back. We don’t just talk about it; we are working on it, and we expect others to follow our lead,” said Reginald Lecount.
