Project Description: Young Men of Destiny is a community driven organization that aims to tackle the issue of violence by incorporating strategies that can increase school retention. This organization has partnered with Young Brothers in order to expand our services and reach more young men in our community. The project consists of participants who are male between the ages of 10-19, who struggle with particular issues ranging from; lack of parental support or guidance, absence of a father figure, lack of interest in education, criminal activity, or need for mentorship. The project provides opportunities for young men who are motivated and inclined to share and grow as learners. Through this project, young men understand and learn how to use their own strengths and weaknesses to support their community, their families, and most importantly themselves.
