The Success of our Scholars depends on the generosity of individuals like yourself

To support Platinum Minds

The scholars the Platinum Minds program are all dedicated students on the right path. These young men have been selected for their character, and interest in community and leadership. Our task is to keep them on the this path. We do so by providing guidance, opportunities, resources, knowledge and motivation.

Indeed, many of them are surrounded by varying degrees of poverty, drugs, gangs and peers heading in the wrong direction. Our scholars are good kids… kids subject to influences around them.

 Your donation can be the difference between a young man staying on the right path or succumbing to the pressures and influences of his environment. Please consider giving only what you can, small amounts add up before you know it.

Arete Leaders Program

($1026 supports a young scholar for an entire year)
We created the Arete’ Leaders Program to develop future leaders. Through monthly sessions, scholars are exposed to learning experiences that are designed to bring out their natural leadership abilities. The goal of the program is to train the scholars to think creatively and act collaboratively to have a positive impact within their schools, families, and communities.


(For $205/yr. you can make a difference in a young mans life)

In the Mentoring Program, students are matched with a caring and supportive adult mentor and role model. These committed volunteers provide guidance, understanding, and tutoring to help their mentees better manage their high school years. Students learn to balance school work, extracurricular activities, and college preparation.

Academic Scholarships

($8000/ yr. can help a young man go to a better high school)
The opportunity to attend the best schools is a gift that changes lives forever. Too many talented young men never get the chance to excel to their potential.  Proving the financial resources to receive a top-quality education, scholars get the opportunity to contribute productively to society and reach their dreams.  You can sponsor a student to go on to secondary school where he can learn in a safe environment and where academic achievement is valued.  Thank you for bringing better educational opportunities to boys who excel with a little guidance.
