The Boys’ Choir of Tallahassee (BCT) is a community outreach program for males, ages eight to 18, enrolled in schools throughout Tallahassee and the surrounding area. BCT’s goal is to help young males living in low, to moderate-income households, realize their full potential by proactively building character, restoring self-esteem, reducing risky behavior and promoting academic success.

The program provides access to high-quality services at no cost to the participant. Strategies include creating a safe, supportive afterschool setting that includes adult and peer mentoring for both academic and social skills and using performance to encourage greater connection with peers, adults and the Tallahassee community. Male adults work with the children as Choir Director, accompanist and mentors, thereby providing positive male role modeling to these children.
