The Advantage Program is a youth mentorship program geared to expose middle and high school aged children to life’s opportunities. The mentors and mentees will meet weekly on Saturday’s for a two-hour time period. During these sessions the curriculum for this program will include entrepreneurship, financial literacy, civil engagement, culinary arts, athletics, and business principles.
Once per month, the Advantage Program will expose participating students to an event or venue outside of York County such as, HBCU’s, NASA, music concerts, college sporting events, the black and wax museum, and professional sporting events. The overall goal of the Advantage Program is to expose the children to different life opportunities as well as multiple career paths. The program hopes to be able to provide necessary school items during the school year as well as a scholarship to college. By helping each student to create a four year plan for after high school and identifying possible career paths through the Career Path exam, we believe we can keep each student focused on positivity and achieving their goals.
To provide young men with guidance and give them an ADVANTAGE in their lives.
To keep young men out of the Justice System.
Being there for each mentee whether at our weekly meeting or for an in school meeting, we are there to ensure that you have someone on your side who believes in you always.
Most of what we know comes from a memorable experience. Exposure is the key to broadening ones perspective and getting to see all that life has to offer.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. We work with each of our mentees to uncover what they are passionate about and then we ensure the necessary steps are being taken to bring their plans to fruition.
We are a 501c3 Nonprofit organization. Thank you for sowing a seed and helping us to CHANGE THE NARRATIVES associated with the young men in our community!
