The Isuthu (Ee-soo-too) Training Institute was founded in 1979 by Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony.  It is a mentoring and rites of passage program for boys ages 6-17.  It strives to grow them into total men; mentally, spiritually, morally, culturally, and physically. They participate in field trips, community service projects, and much more.


Meetings are held the 1st and 2nd Saturday of the month during the school year from 2-4 p.m.  Registration and membership is open to the public for both mentors and mentees.
