Who Are We?

I Am Character Youth Foundation is a youth organization where mentoring and character are developed

Mission Statement

Our Foundation believes the greatest impact for growth and success starts when boys are young. Our principles are built upon one trinity for success. Our focus is to help develop the gifts within and build self-confidence to position our mentees to lead successful and productive lives.
We provide a strong core mentoring program for young men of different backgrounds, including at-risk children experiencing academic and behavior challenges due to family-related and social-economic issues.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

- Martin Luther King Jr.


The goals of IAC (I Am Character Youth) are to positively impact mentees by making them more engaged in their school work, harbor better social and behavior skills, exhibit greater self-control and have more positive feelings about school and home.

‘I Am Character Youth’ Foundation was established on April of 2012 with the mission of making a positive difference in the lives of young men who face life’s adversities, academic challenges, and difficulties when identifying their inner strength, character and talents.
