Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence

The EMBODI Program addresses the full range of developmental needs of African-American and other minority males ages 14 to 18 years of age, with an evolving focus on education, physical health, social and emotional issues, sexuality, economics, and politics. The Program serves as a motivational tool for African American and other minority teenage males with the ultimate goal of increasing their knowledge and awareness of issues affecting young men today.

The Denver Alumnae Chapter (DAC) has partnered with the Sims-Fayola International Academy, a model all-male public charter school in the Denver Public School System with students from 6th to 12th grade. The Academy’s mission is to graduate globally competent college ready males who possess the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind necessary to succeed and contribute in a 21st-century global environment. Their goal to prepare urban males to become creative and innovative thinkers and responsible world citizens through international awareness, competence, and a global perspective of excellence, matches perfectly with EMBODI.
