Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence
Thank you for your interest in the Empowering Males to Build
Opportunities for Developing Independence (EMBODI) program!
EMBODI was designed to serve and uplift African-American males for personal development and independence.
The Academy meets monthly with young men to discuss such program topics as conflict resolution, study and test taking skills, community involvement, self-esteem, peer pressure, finance and healthy lifestyles.
The EMBODI program is designed to chart the journey of young African American males as they strive to meet their fullest potential in the areas of educational, social and emotional development thus enabling them to acquire the skills needed to become responsible, independent and productive members of their communities.
As a participant in the EMBODI Program, African-American Males ages 11-18 will have the opportunity to participate in workshops, field trips and community service activities.
