 Center of Self-Esteem.Org

Provides tools for living for children, needing assistance with Self-Esteem, Anger management, Self-worth, release feelings of apathy, alienation, frustration, and rage. Through the Adopt a Family Scholarship Program, we reverse and heal 100 years of slavery of the African American Family in the United States; we create a new path for the male African American child to go to college instead of prison.

Ways You Can Help:

  • Establish a positive relationship with a mentee
  • Maintain regular interaction and consistent support
  • Establish mutual trust and respect
  • Help the mentee develop life skills
  • Provide supportive services for the adopted family: Pay for: Basketball, summer camp, tennis, swimming lessons, gymnastics, baseball, establish college fund, Savings account, life insurance policy.

Most of all, you can serve as a role model.  A living breathing partner can do more to invalidate negative stereotypes and raise more hope than any case study.

Our Place Center of Self-Esteem Adopt A Family Program is seeking individuals who can work in partnership with an African American single female parent family; to ensure the male child goes to college, instead of to prison.

Remember our cause is one and we must help each other if we would succeed.  Frederick Douglas
