Mission Statement

To reach at-risk youth, connect them with life-on-life Christian adult mentors, and develop them holistically in Jesus Christ to the glory of God.

Description

GRIP Outreach for Youth is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization created to address the growing epidemic of "fatherlessness" and its consequences on youth in the inner-city. Statistically, fatherless teens show an increased risk for gang activity, violence, drug and alcohol dependence, sexual abuse, high school dropout, teen pregnancy, etc. GRIP leverages sports, hip-hop music, and media arts programs to connect Christian mentors with fatherless youth to mentor them and empower them to positively contribute to society, their communities, their churches and their families.
