Mission Statement

"We mentor young men and women through sports programming and life skills education." "No matter where, an avenger will foster a fair positive safe environment using respect for others, self-confidence, and leadership.

Description

In late 2009 Edward Dean looked around his Community and found his children surrounded by poverty and violence--something that, sadly, the city of Detroit has become iconic for. Edward knew that without writing an expensive check, his children would have no safe place to play and learn after school hours. He saw other families with children who had the same problem and realized that it was his duty to create an organization to "take back" or avenge youth from violence they had been born into. The Avengers were born.

Since its inception, we have turned heads and grown rapidly, now serving over 200 children. The Organization offers sports programming and life skills education ranging from basketball to entrepreneurship education.
In April 2010 "Avengers Youth Mentoring Organization" was officially recognized as a nonprofit 501(c)3 Organization in the 13th Congressional District of Detroit, MI.

Our mission:

"We mentor young men and women in the Metro Detroit Area through sports programming and life skills education."

"No matter where we are in the metro Detroit Area, an avenger will foster a fair positive safe environment using respect for others, self confidence and leadership."
