YMI’s bi-weekly Leadership Roundtables provide young men with a safe forum to explore relevant cultural, social and political issues. These interactive, educational meetings offer young men the opportunity to engage in respectful dialogue, and articulate their own opinions, goals and needs.
Field Trips and Team Building Exercises
Team-building and leadership development activities include community service projects, attending sporting events, and cultural excursions such as museum visits, outings to a restaurant and experiencing new Philadelphia neighborhoods.
College and Career Awareness
College and career awareness opportunities - including our annual YMI Career Day - expose boys to the expectations and responsibilities of college and the workplace. Activities include visits to a wide range of professional settings to explore potential career paths.
Prominence Monthly Bulletin
Prominence is a monthly newsletter for the young men and their mentors. The publication highlights YMI activities and field trips, reports on Leadership Roundtable discussions and spotlights the "Man of the Month" - a student recognized for his accomplishments in school, Philadelphia Futures' Pre-College Programs and the community.
