Men Aiming Higher, Inc. was created in 2009 with the mission to successfully mobilize at-risk young men through educational tutoring, leadership training, mentoring programs and community service projects to be a catalyst in directing their paths away from negative peer pressure, unacceptable moral behavior, gangs and other negative urban-living obstacles, and empowering them to become our future leaders and thinkers as well as socially, culturally and community conscience African American young men.
Men Aiming Higher is a broad-based collaborative initiative to improve the lives of young people, mentoring them as they complete their education and achieve economic self sufficiency through the development of empowerment skills and meaningful employment. Men Aiming Higher strives to energize and encourage positive self-esteem and life values on which to build a successful and productive life.
Men Aiming Higher, Inc. seeks to serve as a symbol of leadership by utilizing diverse talents to create environments where our children are motivated to achieve, and to empower them to become self-sufficient through empowerment skills and meaningful employment within the communities we live in. (This vision is about people helping people reach more of their potential through well rounded personal, professional, and emotional growth.)
Men Aiming Higher, Inc. is committed to the intellectual development of youth and the economic empowerment of our communities based on the following precepts: respect for family, spirituality, justice, and integrity.
