Purple Knights of America
"Producing Educated & Successful Young Men One Day at a Time"
HISTORY
The Program was designed as a vehicle to provide mentorship for young men ages 11-18, through confidence development, self-esteem building and community awareness. This is achieved by hosting personal and career development workshops,organizing community service projects and hosting cultural and spiritual activities. The program is set to give each member an opportunity to learn the skills needed to better prepare them for their future. The program was established in 2007 and received its non-profit status in 2010.
Targets for Program
The typical Purple Knights of America employee/volunteer has many goals and vision, however, the biggest of them all is simply, “making a difference in the lives of youths”. Many of the youths we serve come from single parented households where most Mothers and Grandmothers are portraying the roles of both parents; Whereas, other members of the organization come from a parented household which is headed by both the Mother and the Father. The Purple Knights picture is to create an environment that will meet the needs of most disadvantages that our youths may face. In doing so, our goal and mission is to provide the support they need by offering programs within the organization that is tailored to their needs. In the Purple Knightprogram, these young men are surrounded by other supportive members of their brotherhood, who share the drive to achieve educationally and exercise their creativity in a way that will help them become successful leaders. The leadership program is designed to give a sense of empowerment by showing the students how each one of them are important in life and are able to become successful and productive leaders. The overall goal is upon graduating from high school, each individual will be equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to become an effective leader, knowing that Purple Knights is there for him as a resource as he moves forward with his future endeavors.
