Youth Leadership & Development
Our Youth Leadership & Development Program mentors, helps young men and women, most of whom don’t have an active father in their lives, to become responsible members of their communities.
The program teaches avoidance of high risk situations and behaviors such as gang involvement, drug/alcohol use and unhealthy relationships. Mentors prepare participants for higher education and training programs, careers and healthy decision making.
Participants benefit from group as well as one-on-one mentoring and through school and community-based learning experiences.
Graduates receive follow-up services for up to one year to support their transition to adulthood.
