Inner cities youth boys from age 12-18 learn skills that will develop their hearts for giving back, leadership, accountability, discipline, self-respect, good work ethics and a sense of purpose and direction. Group mentorship gives youth a since of belonging, accountability and something bigger than themselves to strive towards. Group mentorship is a positive alternative to gangs or cliques.
We provide community peacekeeping, mainly consisting of men residing within the community. The PEACEKEEPERS are available for major events, community outreach, and peaceful outreach. We strive to maintain a safe and visible presence and engage with community members and leaders. While de-escalating and neutralizing situations in a professional nature.

Freely giving back through events and outreach. We engage with community members/leaders and build relationships, while working to maintain a safe and positive environment.
