#theAcademy365 is creating a safe space and programming that aims to fight the dominant narrative of black men in America. This will be accomplished through creating resources and tools to assist young men in establishing a core identity, an elevated level of emotional intelligence, and social awareness. We seek to transform the lives of these young men by providing tools to achieve academic success, teaching them the foundations of healthy social relationships, and instilling the ideals of professionalism. These skills intend to help advance these students academically and socioeconomically as they pursue their endeavors and impact their communities.
Our vision is to develop young men into individuals who exhibit an esteemed level of self-worth and emotional maturity, in order to overcome life’s challenges and to achieve meaningful and impactful lives.
