Albany -- A group of kids hit the road to the state capitol for the ultimate boys night out. 15 children from Boys to Men went to Atlanta Saturday to visit the Martin Luther King Memorial.

They will also take a tour of Morehouse College, and finish the night off with the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics basketball game.

Boys to Men hopes to give these future men something to aspire to while having fun along the way.

"We just want to be a positive role model. We have so many role models and things that are happening in society that are negative that we are trying to show them a positive side. And hopefully we can impact them," said Director Orson Burton.

All of the boys attend Jackson Heights Elementary and are in the third, fourth and fifth grades.
