Project M.R.

Male Responsibility (Eastside)

Grade Levels:

The purpose of the Center for Leadership Development’s Project MR. (Male Responsibility) Indianapolis Youth Development program is to equip, empower and prepare adolescent African-American males for achievement and success by teaching them the appropriate principles, behaviors, attitudes and values that lead to personal development and career success; and, to teach adolescent African-American males how to be responsible, self-believing, achieving men in society. This is achieved through exposing the “Misters” to educated, upstanding and caring African American male professionals who serve as the facilitators of this program.

Community Alliance Of The Far Eastside (CAFE)

Center for Leadership Development (CLD) satellites and in-school programs will remove barriers to participation by taking CLD programs where youth and families live. The satellite model will allow us to share our proven, high-impact college readiness and success programs with previously unserved communities. We are excited to offer satellite locations on the eastside and far eastside of Indianapolis and look forward to welcoming students from those communities.
