Mentorship

Our young men will be partnered with an assigned mentor who will help them with transitioning into responsible adults. Each mentor will be hand selected and vetted with complete background checks to ensure the safety and protection of our mentees. As a part of the vetting process, each prospective mentor will provide detailed information about their qualifications, achievements and why they would like to be a mentor.

Entrepreneurship

We believe everyone has the desire to own and operate their own business, to be their own boss. One of the core values of this organization is to nurture that desire and provide tools such as Business Planning, Startup Requirements and Financial Sourcing

Finances and Budgeting

Career Day

As one of our planned special event activities we will sponsor Career Day to assist our young men in pursuing the career of their choice. For those young men who may not know which career path they would like to pursue, we will be partnering with school counselors and other vocational specialists to help them get acquainted with the many options available.

L

Community Service

We believe that giving back to the community is a very vital part of the human existence. Our young men will perform supervised community service as we partner with other organizations that help build and repair homes for the elderly and those living in underserved communities, as well as participate in neighborhood “cleanups”.

L

Investments

In addition to learning financial responsibility we will also guide our young men on how to make wise investments, navigating the stock market and saving for retirement.

L

College Tours

With parental permission and participation we will take our young men to visit colleges and universities they plan to attend or would like to know more about. Consideration will be given to distance when deciding which colleges and universities to tour.
