Project Description

DeFined Empowerment, Inc., is a mentoring organization for young people. At present, our current focus is young men. I cannot teach a boy to become a man yet I can be a bridge to nurture his direction. We will pair young men with mentors and internship of their choice. We will partner with entrepreneurs and businesses to bridge those relationships.

 

In addition, we have collaborated with Above It All Counseling https://www.aboveitallcounseling.com/ to encourage young people to positively  use their voices and energy to navigate the course of their lives. Teaching the importance of  Mental Health awareness and the impact it has to encourage their voices as they navigate life’s challenges.

 

I AM DeFined is our campaign! We want to ensure and secure  a home, a space that creates an environment, an atmosphere of productivity, connectivity, and freedom for young people to learn and grow. I AM DeFined will also support the financing of equipment and supplies for our internship program; particularly, for young men not desiring post suecondary education. DeFined Empowerment is dedicated to reaching one young person at a time! We are DeFined! We thank you in advance for your support and monetary contribution.
