(Go to High School / College, Project Alpha)
The Alpha ESQ mentorship program is designed to provide education, motivation and skill-building on issues of personal responsibility, relationships, STEM, entrepreneurship and financial literacy for young males ages 12-18 years. The goals of our interactive mentorship program are to share knowledge by combating ignorance and fear with factual information, debunk the myths by taking a critical look into popular culture, and increasing skills by creating a sense of empowerment and self-esteem.
