To help more young black and brown males complete High School, consider college and develop their maturity.

We are fundraising to guide these young males to Graduation Day!

Imagine being a young minority male 15 years old facing a Judge and a State Attorney in the Juvenile Justice System alone and without a parent or any adult support or personal advocate just for breaking a (zero tolerance) school violation!

The majority of these young minority males find themselves in this situation in today's America due to their lack of parental/natural support and guidance. Many have additional risk factors such as parents who may be incarcerated, family trauma due to poverty, parent's language barriers and lack of education.

Regardless of the underlying causes, poor choices and decisions many times lead to young males being expelled from school and arrested for juvenile delinquency. (School to Prison pipeline)

The lucky ones are referred to Men2Boys' Mentoring Program for comprehensive youth development services which often include:

a) Group Mentoring sessions conducted by our staff of Male Mentors

b) Academic Tutoring and School Advocacy

c) Athletic Training, youth sports Programs

d) Job Readiness, Job Preparedness,

e) Referrals services for mental health, substance abuse, Anger management

Your support/gift helps to keep these young males from finding themselves in front of Judges and State Attorneys, instead they're in a school where they are chasing an education, making positive choices and decisions and leading themselves to a productive adult future!
