I AM PROOF
“It is easier to raise children than to repair broken men” ~ Frederick Douglass
I Am Proof sets young men on a journey of self-discovery using life skills training, which will increase self-confidence and promote leadership abilities, sustainable for a lifetime of success.
The I Am Proof (IAP) 2019 Scholarship fund supports the IAP group mentoring five-sessions program, and invest in the support and capability of the graduates required to continue on their journey to success.
I Am P.R.O.O.F., Inc. will become the principal mentoring program, for young men ages 13-18, in partnership with faith-based and established youth organizations, school systems, and youth sports programs. Additionally, act as an intervention program through mentoring first time offenders in the juvenile justice system.
I Am P.R.O.O.F. engages young men in age-appropriate activities to realize their journey to success comes through self-confidence, personal growth and their contributions to society.
As a result of their ongoing participation in this program, overall school performance improves, drop-out rates decrease, fewer young men enter the juvenile justice system, and graduation rates increase. Graduates have more job opportunities, higher starting salaries, greater job satisfaction, and greater success in life as a result of the life skills they received through I Am P.R.O.O.F.
