UCAN of Memphis is an organization that mentors at-risk behavior students in middle and high school. We mentor boys and girls who have been affected by bullying, low self-esteem and behavior issues which causes low academic performances. Our program, Dare 2 Dream, uses the model of We Will Generation and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, to boost self-esteem and lower bullying incidents at school.
Our mission is to strengthen young adolescents through mentoring, workforce readiness and bullying awareness which will bring forth positive growth in the community.
All youth have the potential to succeed in life and contribute to society. However, not all youth get the support they need to thrive. Build a trusting relationship and become a mentor.
Youth need a purpose in life, positive thinking, goal setting, positive affirmations for self – improvement, and personal growth. Help build our future leaders.
Help prepare our youth for their future by imparting knowledge, positive judgment and well-developed wisdom as they learn social skills, work ethics, and college preparations.
