BENEFITING: Youth Leadership Foundation, Inc.
In 2011, my best friend since 1st grade was running the Tenley Achievement Program (TAP), a mentoring program for inner-city boys in DC. He asked me to come check it out one day... the rest is history. I've been a mentor for the past 5 years and while waking up early on a Saturday isn't my favorite thing in the world, it's worth it. Our mission is not just to help the boys with their academics but to cultivate virtue and form men of character. Each semester DC public schools charges us $10k to use their facilities. Budgetary constraints have forced us to move locations 4 times in 5 years. Each time we move we lose some of our boys. Your donation will help us find a permanent home so that we can grow the program and help as many boys as possible. Thank you!
