This Awesome Little Light of Mine


Our Becoming The Best Me Workshop is an educational program lead by a group of phenomenal volunteers dedicated to enriching the lives of youth in the community. With incentives for both personal and professional growth, the training sessions give youth the opportunity to cultivate talents, build alliances, and celebrate the success of their peers. This intensive workshop series equips at-risk youth with life skills to be successful in:

  • Etiquette
  • Education
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Self-Esteem
  • Self-Love
  • Health and Wellness
  • The Role Of The Male In The Family
  • Financial Literacy and Money Management for Youth 

Our team of volunteer coaches and mentors are passionate about helping at-risk youth develop skills that will allow them to progress and lead happier and healthier lives. The youth are exposed to a rewarding and fun experience over the course of the training. We look forward to future program offerings in alignment with our mission to further enable at-risk youth and the Brownsville/East New York community.
