Young Men's Initiative

The NYC Young Men’s Initiative (YMI) is committed to addressing disparities faced by Black and Latino young men in New York City across the areas of education, employment, health, and justice.

The initiative focuses on 4 key areas:
• increasing literacy in young children
• improving graduation rates and workforce readiness
• protecting youth from violent crime
• building stronger relationships between the community and law enforcement

YMI also provides assistance with fatherhood services, mentoring, LGBTQ inclusion, and issues that pertain to young men of color.

If you are a company that would like to partner with YMI, you should check for opportunities through the City’s RFP process.
