Mission and Vision
Our mission is to empower young males of color by fostering belief in their abilities, setting and upholding high expectations, providing positive male role models, building and strengthen self-confidence, creating fraternal bonds, instilling morals and values, celebrating their uniqueness, and providing exposure to opportunities that will prepare them for the world.
The young men of the Clan will acquire the tools and skills needed to become positive, highly motivated, and productive men who are college and career ready. They will become future leaders who will uplift their communities, support their families, and impact society through their contributions in their designated professions.
