Forthcoming Book June 2017


The agency trusts that we can make a superior showing with regards to raising and teaching young men and that a national association for the improvement of young men can help young men flourish as:

  • Parents, teachers, mentors, coaches, counselors, and others understand and appreciate boys’ gender-specific evolving needs;
  • Schools and teachers instill proven processes for teaching and nurturing boys successfully
  • Authentic adults are inspired and trained to be effective role models, coaches, and mentors to boys in communities
  • Young men themselves see how they can find astute direction and a feeling of calling and reason. In this unique circumstance, Urban Colors Arts and Mentoring is not just ready to lead a national discussion on the advancement of young men additionally encourage positive social change through particular projects and associations.


Urban Colors Arts and Mentoring focus is divided into three obligations:

  • Research and resource dissemination from programs leading the field as well as pilot programs using statistical procedures for combining data from multiple studies.
  • Community and family support through the coaching of parents and mentors, consulting with athletic organizations, drug and violence reduction programs and partnerships in underprivileged areas, summits and events for parents and faith communities.
  • School and institutional efficacy improvement through pilot programs, justifiable interventions in schools and institutions, cultural diversity  training for teachers, training for mental health and social services workers, and collaboration with athletic organizations.
