FEATURE: Raising KINGS 2019

The 2019 Raising Kings Conference once again kicks off during National Mentoring Month and the MLK holiday! Our donors and partners have meant so much in honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Past contributions helped us recruit 130 new mentors, engage 165 boys in meaningful mentor activity throughout the year, and raise $38,000 to sustain our year round work to change the outcomes for our boys!

​The time to do something - to not remain silent - is right now. And Raising Kings offers an opportunity. Raising Kings is a year-round, high impact opportunity that connects our highest needs youth with positive male mentors, role models and fathers. 


Raising KINGS is collaborative commitment aimed at changing the image and expectations of men and boys of color by elevating the level of positive male engagement in the lives of African American boys. The program meets a core developmental need in boys for strong, positive relationships as a key strategy to violence prevention.
