Mentorship

Mentorship has been proven to reverse the trend of poverty through informal communication, psychosocial support, role modeling, and guidance during a sustained period of time, between a person who has greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience and a person with less.

Developing skills that build leaders

In poverty stricken and politically unstable environments, it is common for one or both parents to be forced to leave the family unit in order to provide financial means or safety.  Many children around the world are then left without strong role models to learn from, leading them to make poor choices and continue the downward spiral. This perpetuates the cycle of poverty and crime across the globe. 

Mentorship has been proven to reverse this trend through informal communication, psychosocial support, role modeling, and guidance during a sustained period of time, between a person who has greater relevant knowledge, wisdom, or experience and a person with less.

We accomplish this through sports, arts, technology, agriculture, social engagement, and more.

A successful example of a mentorship initiative we’ve already developed is our baseball program in Haiti.  Over the last 3 years, we have supplied baseball equipment, coaches, and training to over 200 youth at a community center in Port a Prince.  This program has given these young boys an alternative to gang participation and running the streets of one of the most impoverished areas in the world today.
