At the beginning of Polka Dot Socks, each student receives the official Gentlemen-In-Training Kit which includes their polka dot necktie, ballpoint writing pen and custom portfolio. There are a cadre of professional men who serve within Polka Dot Socks as Life Coaches. These trained professionals will follow the students for 2 years. During their 2-year tenure, they will contact students by phone bi-monthly and are encouraged to spend supervised entertainment time with students in a group setting.

The Gentlemen-In-Training Kit tools are used throughout the course and allow students to participate in a uniform environment. Throughout the 10 sessions, students participate in two (2) community service activities, are taken on two (2) cultural outings and have a series of recreational activities. These are all built in the curriculum to help each student apply what they have learned in a tangible way.

Polka Dot Socks culminates with a student recognition ceremony. This ceremony allows each student to invite their parents/guardians and showcase what they have learned throughout the program. At the recognition ceremony each student receives their official graduation gift from their life coach along with their official I AM A GENTLEMAN, INC. lapel pin.
