i am unstoppable - mentorship program

The objective of this program is to break the cycle of the school-to-prison pipeline that disproportionately affects African Americans and indigenous youth.

 

We achieve this by pairing young individuals with mentors from diverse fields, offering civic education to empower them as advocates for change, and prioritizing early intervention with elementary students and staff.

 

By taking these preventative actions, we believe we can directly contribute to ending mass incarceration and creating a more equitable society.
