Mentoring is the cornerstone of what the organization brings to the community by guiding youth in life experiences, fostering a positive self-perception and self respect, encouraging excellence in education, and the pursuit of positive life-long goals.
“What they see is what they will be.”
Education initiatives like partnering with local communities to create and/or support charter schools, summer camps for at-risk youth, as well as career days at schools/universities are an important focus for our organization. It is an evolution of our mentoring activities as we endeavor to inundate children and communities in innovative student-centered academic environments enhancing their ability to attain their dreams and become productive global leaders.
