What We Do

DBI youth coordinators will match mentees with mentors using our mentoring matching software. Once we match mentees with a mentor, we begin to provide a holistic program that offers self- awareness training, HBCU college tours, nutrition sessions, financial literacy classes, prison visits/father daughter workshops, conflict resolution, beginners cooking classes, stress management, etiquette classes , setting goals, problem-solving , complying with rules, communicating effectively and practicing social skills to initialize a healthy stable life-through education, mentorship and supporting these girls to gain effective life and leadership skills.

Every great achiever is inspired by a great mentor.
