Educators at a Plant City, Fla., middle school created a club -- the Gentlemen's Quest -- for seventh- and eighth-grade boys deemed at-risk, to offer them mentors and help them acquire important life skills. The GQ students participate in special lessons, service projects and trips to colleges and camps, and serve as ambassadors for the school. "These are their formative years. We want to give them as many options as possible," principal Daphne Blanton said.
