Those attending North Charleston High School who forget to wear a belt are given one by staff.
“We want to teach them and educate them about manhood, and part of manhood is carrying yourself with respect,” school mentor Thomas Ravenell said.
The new school year has just started, and already more than 30 belts have been given to students in need.
The program is reminiscent of a classic moment from American Idol.
“With your pants sagging, it shows [a] negative attitude towards you. So we want to teach the children that if you want to be respected, and if you want respect, then you have to give it,” Ravenell said.
