The Young Men of Color Leadership Academy's purpose is to make a difference in the lives of young men of color through mentoring, education, economic empowerment, and health and wellness initiatives that promote community involvement and builds high levels of self-esteem in tomorrow's leaders.
We measure the program's success by tracking student grades, behavior in school, suspension rates, and on-time graduation rates.
Mentoring the 100 Way® - A holistic mentoring program that addresses the social, emotional, and cultural needs of children ages 8-18. Members of the 100 receive a certificate of training to become mentors, advocates, and role models for the youth within their communities. Through chapter operated one-on-one and group mentoring efforts, our members forge relationships that positively impact our greatest resource: our youth. The program focuses on building essential skills needed to become productive, contributing citizens.
