Our Mission

The Young Masterminds Initiative promotes mentorship, leadership and positive self-awareness for our future generation.  This initiative creates unique experiences that cultivate the lives of our young men, emulating the Mastermind Connect pillars of resources, reciprocity and respect. Since May, 2017, we have engaged in great strategic partnerships, such as the NYC Urban Ambassadors program of The New York City Department of Education, the Achievement First Charter Schools, and with the Coalition for Hispanic Family Services.

Why?

Growing up in today’s generation means having to be mentally prepared for many of life's challenges. These challenges can show through prejudices, judgments, discrimination and/or social rejection, causing feelings of insecurity that lead to low confidence and/or self-esteem. Unfortunately, our society has maintained outdated morals and values, which are negatively impacting our youth. These limiting ideals can be seen displayed across the spectrum of today's media; it's restricted perception continues to promote egotistical views, which translate to unhealthy behaviors among our youth and society.
