Why Image Character Etiquette (ICE) Inc. you may ask? Well, the response to this question is simple: man has questions and man needs answers and because of this, we believe no man should be left out of “the known.”
At one time, man had all the answers – or at least he thought he did! He once had the family and support structure to teach him all he needed to know. He would have learned how to establish values for himself, what morals are and what things are appropriate versus what things are not. He may have learned the simple, but not always obvious dos and don’ts that can help man land a really great opportunity or watch it slip right out of his grasp. Man once knew about finance management, hard work, goal setting, priorities, and how to be a gentleman. Even if man didn’t have family structure and support, man was still strong because he had a village behind him! But what happens if the village or the pillars that were once in man’s life have changed forms or lost their strength? It is through my personal experience and analysis of man that I’ve found when this occurs, there is very little man knows.
According toTeachnology.com, “Character education is a teaching method, which fosters the development of ethical and responsible individuals by teaching them about the good values that people should have. It teaches the students the values of caring about other people, honesty, responsibility, and other important traits that make for an upstanding citizen.” It is character education that teaches man how to conduct himself. No man should live life without learning how to respect. Man should know how to bring his ideas, as well as his dreams, into fruition.
It is for this reason that ICE exists. It is because we strongly believe that if we can teach young men the importance of having a positive image, show them how to develop great character and encourage them to use etiquette to their advantage than we can improve classroom behavior, motivate academic success, make better family men for society and form leaders out of every young man.
