Our Program

The three main components of our program include: goal setting with plans of action, mentorship of an adult support system, and international travel during our global steward trip.

Plan of Action

Upon admission, each youth undergoes a comprehensive assessment, which evaluates their emotional, behavioral, medical, educational, and social needs.
An individual Plan of Action is then created, which includes personal, academic, career, relationship and financial goals for their future. The Plan of Action is uniquely designed to help each youth understand their purpose and take steps to fulfill it.

Adult Support System

Each youth is assigned a team of adults to support and reinforce their Plan of Action. This team includes a Purpose Coach, a one-on-one mentor, Credible Messenger, and a Celebrity Advisor.

Over the next 12 months, youth are immersed in a 4-phase curriculum that teaches positive decision- making and anger management, builds self-esteem and brotherhood/sisterhood bonding, develops leadership and business skills, creates a plan for higher education, builds the foundation for the pursuit of a chosen career, teaches global awareness, community activism, and international humanitarianism.

Global Steward Trip

We celebrate our achievements with an international volunteer trip. At the conclusion of phase 4, youth who have successfully completed the program are awarded the opportunity to travel internationally with other graduates on a global steward trip to volunteer in Africa.
