Raising Kings is a year-round, high impact opportunity to connect our highest needs youth with positive male mentors, role models and fathers. With your help, we can continue to raise the next generation of King leadership and empower our children to begin living "the Dream"!
The time is now! Recently, the C.D.C. division that investigates the aftermath of disaster, came to Wilmington to explore a public health issue claiming the lives of young black males: gun violence. “Our investigation was not focused on the mechanism of injury, but rather the opportunities to intervene on more root causes of violence such as prior exposure to violence, family disruption and limited educational attainment.” Courtney Lenard, CDC Epidemic Intelligence The New York Times. Disproportionately high recurrent violence, trauma, substance use and mental health issues among our children devastate entire families throughout the nation. We must change these outcomes in Delaware... We have no choice!
“History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.” Dr. Martin Luther Kings
Dr. King's legacy commands that we come together as a beloved community and act now! Your financial contribution and mentor commitment provides youth males age 6-18 with: one-on-one, lifeline mentor connections with men, role models and fathers from their own communities; coaching through key transition periods in life; success planning and skills training for excellence in education and the workforce.
Our impact continues year-round beginning in January with Raising Kings Week. Join more than 700 men and boys of color for a full schedule of inspiring narratives, thought provoking presentations, and courageous conversations.
Give here or contact us directly to discuss other meaningful ways you might lend your time and talent to support our work. We look forward to hearing from you very soon!
Together WE are “the village”.
