THE STORY:

dartagnan scorza wrote -

Based on media reports, you might say that young men of color face the highest imprisonment, recidivism, youth victimization, and death rates in the country. Or maybe you would say that 47 percent of black boys don’t graduate from high school, and of those who do make it to college, 70 percent will drop out.

However, at SJLI, we would tell you that all young men of color have the capability of being scholars. This isn’t just wishful thinking on our part. At SJLI, we've developed an academically sound program that interrupts the school to prison pipeline. 

Since 2006, SJLI has delivered effective programs, resources and support that creates conditions that advance academic achievement for young men of color.

  • 95% of students who complete an Urban Scholars program graduate high school and 80% attend a 2/4-year college or vocational school.  
  • 1,500 students have benefited from Urban Scholars programming such as seminars, college tours and field trips.
  • Since 2009, 150 Urban Scholars have graduated and become alumni that pursued post-secondary education at colleges such as Western New Mexico University, Central Arizona College, Southern Illinois University, and universities throughout the California State system.
  • More than 100 SJLI youth participated in the White House "My Brother's Keeper" Listening Event in March 2014 and shared their personal experiences with White House representatives and other invited participants.  

SJLI is changing the lives of boys and men of color helping them graduate, go to college and become community leaders. You can help too!
