- To expand the horizons of young African American males by cultivating a personal vision for their lives;
- To provide tools for young African American males to attain a higher quality of life;
- To provide young African American males with an awareness of various college and career options to make rewarding life choices and decisions; and
- To create community-minded young African American males by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.
The Program serves as a motivational tool for African American teenage males with the ultimate goal of increasing their knowledge and awareness of issues affecting young men today.
- Scholarship (Academic Excellence)
- Sisterhood (Self-esteem and health awareness)
- Financial Awareness (Show us the Money)
- Service (Community service activities)
- Infinitely Complete (Rites of Passage)
By incorporating these five components, we will form a roadmap for college and career planning. Our topics are designed to provide interactive lessons and activities that provide opportunities for self reflection and individual growth. Our goal is to enrich the lives of our youth and prepare them for academic success in high school as well as post-secondary school (i.e., college or military). In the past years, we have taken the young ladies on tours of HBCUs as well as local industrial corporations to expose them to life outside of high school. We are invested in the young ladies that we assist and do not take this responsibility lightly.
