OUR CORE VALUES

EXPERIENCE

Our mentees will be provided a well-rounded curriculum designed to engage every aspect of the young man’s life inside the education system and beyond.

JOY

We orchestrate non-traditional activities which allow the young men to be curious and explore under the umbrella of safe keeping. Such activities cultivate self-directed learning, modeling, and relationship development.

 

PRIDE

Discovery of talents raises self-esteem by giving our youth a sense of their own power, unconsciously exercising cognitive development.

LABOR

Our program focuses heavily on teaching young men a work ethic through modeling; through labor bonding comes naturally and is essential to relationship building as men.
