Mission Statement

Description

We place a positive focus on entrepreneurship enabling youth and young adults to achieve moral maturity. Further resulting in better decision-making regarding education, finances, career options, the entertainment of criminal activities, community engagement, and leadership, which lead to better lifestyles.

Bella Diamondz- The program ran successfully, completed with eight (8) young ladies. The program allowed for three (3) young ladies during the "Ways to make money" to express the interest to become entrepreneurs, one has decided to open a dog sitting service, a home hair salon for young ladies, and the other a neighborhood small store.

Youth in Lead- Young men and ladies of YAMM put their leadership skills into practice with a trip to Charlotte in August 2018, tickets sponsored by the Carolina Panthers, transportation paid by YAMM directors. The group of young ladies assisted in chaperoning other youth, taking lead. We look forward to running this program again in September 2019.

YAMM Community Day- Since 2017, YAMM in collaboration with two nonprofit organizations has hosted "Community Day" once a month in each neighborhood from April to September in low-income community areas of Winston-Salem: Residents were given free hot dogs/hamburgers, a drink, and chips. We also provided entertainment: DJ, Games, Basketball, and Marching Band performances.
