Mr. Alvin was born in Detroit, MI. He gave his life to Jesus several years ago and has since enjoyed teaching and spending time with the youth. He believes that mentoring is a way to ensure that every child has at least one stable adult role model. "Having a mentor can provide an at-risk youth with the direction and guidance they need."
"Being able to leave the world better than you found it should always be the key.Taking the time to reach out to others, sharing your life's wisdom, and conveying your respect for them is probably the least expensive and most powerful way to change the world, one life at a time."
If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether it's serving as a mentor, providing food, or collecting donations, we need you. And so do communities in need.
We're continually working hard to improve communities throughout the city of Jonesboro and surrounding counties. If you're interested to see what we've been doing recently (especially if you want to help), check out some of our programs.
Mr. Simeion Blakely has decided to dedicate his life to the cause of helping other individuals. He has served as the CFO and lead mentor for the past three years. "Mentoring can help youth as they go through challenging life transitions, including dealing with stressful changes at home or transitioning to adulthood. This has been one amazing journey and I'm looking forward to mentoring the young men God will continue to bring our way."
"Our mentors are there to provide the youth with support and encouragement to help them reach their goals. We are professionals and have a broad range of skills and experience to help youth tackle the challenges they are facing. We can offer an alternative perspective through sharing our own ideas and experiences, and helping youth to think through important decisions by acting as a sounding board."
We have a simple, but robust mission: to help people in need. We do that by focusing on community-based efforts including education, awareness, and food aid. We want to make a difference.
I have been incredibly fortunate in my life to never have experienced the degree of difficulties growing up that I see in the world every day. I can’t imagine what it’s like to go hungry or to not have both parents in the home - and I think it’s a shame that in a country as great as ours, anyone should.
"I think that mentoring is truly one of the most important relationships. Every child desires affirmation. A mentor is someone who believes in you even when understanding all the clutter and imperfections in your life."
With that desire in my heart, I preside over The Unwritten Youth Project, Inc. We’re all looking to make a difference in our world and I believe that by focusing on our youth, we’re going to make the most substantial impact. The world is made up of these important social connections and if you foster them positively, they’ll pay huge dividends - in unconditional love, care, and a better society.
