MENTORING helps youth to avoid and/or prepare for challenging life transitions. Close, healthy, supportive relationships between mentors and mentees that last for a significant portion of time are central to success. Mentoring can be critical to achieving both academic and personal goals. Studies point to increases in confidence, high school graduation rates, improved behavior; both at home and at school, improved interpersonal skills, as well as decreases in risky behavior such as violence and substance abuse.
IMPACT YOUTH SESSIONS are interactive and engaging sessions to teach young men the fundamental skills necessary to become resilient leaders within their community. Mentors establish strong, trusting relationships and create a thriving environment to teach impactful lessons through holistic programming.
COMMUNITY SERVICE provides mentees with the opportunity to become active members of their community and has a lasting, positive impact on society at large. Community service develops an increased sense of social responsibility while helping youth to develop skills, make contacts, and allow them to improve the quality of life of others.
LEADERSHIP AND LIFE SKILLS TRAININGS are FREE sessions designed to give youth the leadership skills and basic fundamentals (effective communication, etiquette, financial literacy, etc.) to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood to achieve full potential through activities and experiences that develop social, emotional, physical, and cognitive competencies.
