Our Mission and Values

We are a nonprofit organization that introduces industry knowledge, innovation, education, preparation, integrity, focus, commitment, and responsibility to give male youths a vision and path for a financial and economically sustainable future. Our value comes from exemplifying the job and career opportunities frequently overlooked and seldom seen or experienced by minority youths from traditional to nontraditional roles.
