A place where we can change the generic vernacular of terms often not used within our community. A Fellowship.
Project T.H.U.G. targets adolescent black males in their Junior year of high school and senior year of middle school. Fellows who enter the program will participate in an 8-month intensive program – capped with a service program to graduate. The program will promote both aspects in which they often do not intersect. Promoting both education and vocation through a rather holistic approach. The fellowship focuses on what it looks like to create a well-rounded young man of valor. The idea is to plant seeds early on in hopes that they will one-day blossom and bear fruit in which our community will be able to harvest. Ultimately, the investment is long-term – but one that will create a cycle of young men coming back to cultivate their communities.
