Program 1

Youth Mentoring and Leadership Program for Children of African Decent

The program’s goal is to educate the children of African immigrants, who are caught between two cultures, to recognize and tap into the values in their uniqueness and rich cultural heritage with a view of becoming leaders in their new American culture. The program facilitates the building of a healthier Minnesota community by providing immigrant children with life-changing experiences that build the participants' self-esteem, self-sufficiency and conflict skills; helping them to overcome academic, social, and cultural barriers to success, preparing them to be confident and productive global citizens while promoting interracial understanding and respect.
