Young Commanders Leadership Program

Building Better Men

We are raising up the next generation of mentors.

We accomplish this by preparing young men (protégés), in grades 2-8 to exhibit leadership at home, school, and the community with support from adult mentors, parents/guardians, and each other.

Program Outcomes

  1. Graduates exhibit healthy positive social behaviors (R.A.D.)
  2. Graduates have connections with supportive adults who help further their future (network)
  3. Graduates establish a lasting mentoring relationship with their adult mentors

Qualities of A Good Mentor

Before becoming a mentor, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring. Most of us have had a teacher, supervisor, or coach who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as delegators, role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends. Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:

  • A sincere desire to be involved with a young person
  • Respect for young people
  • Active listening skills
  • Empathy
  • Ability to see solutions and opportunities
  • Flexibility

“I’m really proud of my son. Whatever you said, keep it going…I think he’s finally beginning to open up and enjoy the group…thanks Coach.”

Young Commanders has helped me in many ways. For instance, in our declaration that we say every day it reminds me that I am a leader and teaches me to be a better man. Also, the team-building exercises we do every day allows me to exercise my leadership and help others when they are down. As a whole young commanders has helped me to become a leader and a better man. And for that, I love and appreciate the many friendships I’ve gained from young commanders.

Being a mentor has given me the opportunity to be a positive influence in the life of not only my protege Kyle Jackson, but in the lives of other young men and their families as well. The family-like atmosphere amongst all involved in the true blessing as I am able to be inadvertently mentored by other men of God. The laughter, the smiles, and the growth of this family inspires me, and lets me know I am on the right path.
