Founder — CEO 

I started Mshauri mentoring program because I see myself in so many of our young male and females in the neighborhoods I once lived in. 

 

I remember being about nine years old and my mom not being able to buy Christmas gifts for my siblings and I. My mentor took me and bought me a Little Tikes bike. Not only did he buy me that bike, he also got everybody in my house something. I knew at that moment he genuinely cared about me. 

 

At the young age of 16 I lost my first child due to a miscarriage and my mother in the same year. I had to take on a lot of adult responsibilities and not knowing how to deal with the hurt, pain and the feeling of being lost; I turned to selling drugs and living the street life.  

 

My long time mentor saw me spiraling and gave me a position within the church; Assistant Youth Coordinator. I oversaw the daily events, activities and programs but most importantly I was able to see other impacted youth just like me who actually looked up to me. I grew in this position and gained the trust of the youth within the program and I started being the responsible leader I had always been destined to be. 

 

Having a mentor and the program at the church as an outlet allowed me to feel safe. I was able to open up but my daily life experiences and      

never felt judged. I was able to use my experiences to connect to other youth who were experiencing some of the same things I was rather that was homelessness, food shortages, not having clean or adequate clothing etc. 

 

My mentor saved my life by giving me the confidence and notion that I wasn’t alone. The position that he entrusted me with allowed me to see that it was my responsibility to help the next at risk youth to the best of my ability. 

 

Mshauri Mentoring Program is that safe place for kids. A place where at risk youth can come and express their feelings and deal with their emotions as well as their mental health issues openly. This is a safe, no judgement zone. We help with internships, entrepreneurships, life coaching, financial literacy and we hope to be able to also provide our disadvantaged youth with housing opportunities.

At Mshauri mentoring program, we are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of youth and parents who need our support. As our program continues to grow, we have established new policies to ensure that we can provide impactful services to those who need it most. Here are the new requirements for participation in our program:

 

- To enroll your child in our mentoring program, you will need to attend an in-person meeting scheduled through Calendly on Sundays from 12 PM to 3 PM or Wednesdays from 12 PM to 6 PM. This will give us the opportunity to go over the program and necessary paperwork with you before your child begins.

 

- Each parent is required to pay a monthly fee of $10 per child participating in the program ($120 per year).

 

- We also require that each parent volunteer two hours a month for each child participating in the program to support the overall functioning of the program. This ensures that parents take an active role in their child’s development while supporting the overall functioning of the program.

 

- If your child participates in our free Mothers Break Day program on Sundays from 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM, you must register each Sunday through our website. Please be prompt for drop off and pick up.

 

We understand that these requirements may require a level of commitment, but they are necessary for us to continue to grow and provide impact to at-risk and underserved communities in low to moderate-income neighborhoods. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
