United We Still Stand
The Boys-Into-Men Program, Inc. ('Boys-Into-Men') is a non-profit, juvenile and adult delinquency self and substance abuse prevention program, primarily, for African-American males from 'High Risk' environments. 'Boys-Into-Men' was founded in 1990, incorporated and determined 501(c)(3) eligible by the Internal Revenue Service in 1992. The mission of 'Boys-Into-Men' is to help African-American males make the successful physical, mental and spiritual transition from boyhood to responsible adulthood. 'Boys-Into-Men' engages participants who are economically disadvantaged, poor achievers, chronic failures, those who lack bonding and commitment to school, as well as, those who lack a positive self-image, religious and commonly held social values. 'Boys-Into-Men' participants are taught independence, self-control, discipline, responsibility, to cooperate with one another, how to settle differences in non-violent ways and to internalize social skills which will make a difference in the direction they focus their lives. 'Boys-Into-Men' helps participants learn to build their self-esteem and image among their peers, structure their time, occupy their minds, earn legitimate income and direct their energies into positive channels. 'Boys-Into-Men' has five (5) program components: Academic Enrichment, Character Affirmation, Entrepreneurial Skills, Prison Prevention and Prostate Education And Cancer Elimination (P.E.A.C.E.). 'Boys-Into-Men' helps participants learn to value the pursuit of academic and personal excellence, consequently, helping to stabilize their lives and increasing their chances of reaching adulthood, physically, mentally and spiritually. Since young people receive much of their information through Pop, Rock, R&B and, especially, Rap music, 'UNITED WE STILL STAND' is an effective way to positively impact their attitudes about violence, crime, drugs, terrorism, patriotism and the American spirit.
