Mentoring Program

Promising Men Mentorship Program

The Kool Boiz Foundation is partnering with the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley to provide a mentoring program designed to help young men increase their educational skills, social skills, and leadership skills.  The Promising Men Mentorship Program will work with boys in 5th through 7th grade enrolled at Youngstown Community School in Youngstown, Ohio.  

Mentoring Makes a Difference

Our mentoring program aims to change the mindsets and behaviors of the young men we serve and help them achieve success in all aspects of their lives. Research shows that youth who have high levels of developmental assistance achieve more and are involved in fewer high-risk behaviors. According to the National Cares Mentoring Movement, when young people are mentored well, 98% stay in school... 98% do not become teen parents... 85% do not use drugs... and 98% avoid gang participation.
