Leadership

We are here to empower homeless and at-risk youth toward lifelong personal growth. They have tremendous stories.

Our community based mentoring approach gives boys a variety of positive male role models who show up consistently, tell the truth about their struggles as men, ask the boys what kind of man they want to be, praise them for their gifts, support t and encourage them to become exceptional members of the community by nurturing them emotionally, and uplifting them spiritually.
