At its core it’s designed to provide young men with a chance to make meaningful contributions to their communities. Candidates with leadership potential and the desire to effect positive change by becoming teachers in their communities are selected for the program. Honoré scholars are provided room and board on the Southern University at New Orleans campus. Scholars are also provided with; a personal computer, a monthly stipend of $100 dollars, personal counseling, life skills training sessions, tutoring resources and the provision of all required textbooks for up to five years.

The continued success and growth of our program depends on the generous support of foundations, corporations and private individuals who believe in our work and want to see it continue as part of the African American male initiative.

It takes more than nine-thousand dollars per year per student to provide these young men with their campus housing, meal plans, textbooks, monthly stipends, technology support services, and other basic needs that they are often unable to provide for themselves. We cannot do this work alone, your donation has the potential to change not only a student’s life but an entire community. Your support is greatly appreciated, and any amount is tax deductible.
