INSPIRE: Group Mentoring

We believe in the power of creating quality mentoring relationships with the youth of our community.  Group sessions are open to young men and women ages 11 to 14 years old.  Participants learn how to become heroes in their own lives through sessions centered on identity, self esteem, and respect for self and others. Inspire groups also enjoy several fun and educational trips throughout the year.

Have a young person that could benefit from mentorship but they're older than 14? Check out The IE Center which serves ages 15 and up.

The Noble Warrior

The Noble Warrior is a martial arts based program that  engages young men, ages 10-15 years old, to help them learn how to lead healthy lives by focusing on 3 main points: dealing with anxiety, overcoming "can't", and conflict resolution/violence prevention.  By exposing the participants to the fundamental concepts of different martial arts techniques, we are able to teach focus, balance, strength, self-control, respect, integrity, and perseverance.  Students are also provided with one on one mentoring sessions with the Program Director, and Life Skills workshops​.

CONNECT: 1 to 1 Mentoring

Our 1 to 1 mentoring program creates and sustains relationships between trusted and supportive adult volunteer mentors and youth between the ages of 11 - 18. This relationship exposes youth to new opportunities for learning and growth in areas of positive youth development, academic achievement, health and wellness, and critical skills for future self-sufficiency.
