The Program serves as a motivational tool for African American and other minority teenage males with the ultimate goal of increasing their knowledge and awareness of issues affecting young men today. Suffolk County Alumnae Chapter continues to work with youny men in our area to meet the goals of this program.

  • To develop a personalized tool kit that will provide each young man with an individualized approach toward enhanced self-understanding; 

  • To provide each young man with the support and caring of a consistent adult male role model; 

  • To stimulate an awareness of various college and career options to make rewarding life choices and decisions; and . 

  • To create community-minded, caring, giving, and productive citizens by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.
