Program Description

The Be Proud Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The overall mission of the Be Proud Foundation is to help youth make a positive change in their life.

This includes:

  • Providing youth development programs that encourage logical thinking, personal responsibility, and good citizenship;
  • Providing community-based alternative programs and services to troubled and/or economically disadvantaged youth;
  • Preventing neglect, abuse and exploitation of children and promoting, supporting, and encouraging the physical, mental, and overall well being of children;
  • Assist youth in recovering credits needed to graduate from high school;
  • Helping youth set goals and overcome problems that could result in dropping out of school, dependency, unemployment, delinquency, poverty, and an inability to reach their full potential; and
  • Assisting youth in short and long term career exploration and planning in order to enter the labor force and pursue enrollment in college or other post-secondary education.
