Mission of the Young Men's Initiative

The mission of the Young Men’s Initiative (YMI), is to connect Black and Latino young people to opportunities and support that can lead them to success and allow them to participate in the City’s recovery. YMI will accomplish its mission through broad policy changes and agency reforms over the next three years, funded by a public-private partnership that is investing more than $42 million annually in programs that will connect young men to educational, employment, and mentoring opportunities across more than a dozen city agencies.
