The P.R.Y.D.E. Mentoring Academy, like other programs are realistic in our goals, we understand that we cannot save all At-Risk youths; we can only try to save the ones that are drawn to our programs because what we are offering resonates within their hearts, just as other unique programs have At-Risk youths drawn to them because of what they are offering. We believe that combined we can dramatically accomplish more together than what we can do alone.
The P.R.Y.D.E. Mentoring Academy and its partners are willing to be the Village, because we understand that when one Village rises and unites a people to preserve a generation, other Villages tend to follow. Our mission partnered with like-minded organizations and programs to create a unique combined program that offers Mentoring in conjunction with Music, Performing Arts, Culinary Arts, Athletics Health Care, and a unique Armed Forces Training program with varied curriculum under one umbrella, “P.R.Y.D.E.”. Though this is our Mission Statement, it is not our Mission, it is our Responsibility.
