Our Impact

Last year, over 30% of our Gentlemen stepped into leadership roles in their communities, while over 80% of our Gentlemen who received direct support from PG were able to discover their purpose and one-day ultimately serve through purpose-driven leadership. In the 2016-17 academic year, over 90% of our Gentlemen utilized our support from programming to become stronger leaders in their community. Additionally, 100% of educators in our program returned to the education profession seeking to continue their leadership journey.

Across the country, our educators serve as mentors, advocates, and role models for all students, boys of color. They give their time to create a cradle to career pipeline for boys of color to ensure that their boys are college and career ready. Support our educators and help them fuel the pipeline.
