The purpose of the program is to restore family values back into our communities.
We use our voice for advocacy and our passion in programs to drive our work to build families through developing boys and encouraging fathers.
The vision of EMIY is to
EMIY Future Leaders (EFL) and Good Fathers Only (GFO)
EMIY Future Leaders Program (EFL) is a 14 week peer mentoring training designed to forefront the natural talents and leadership abilities of boys ages 8-13. EFL develops leadership skills as a basis for prevention and intervention.
Our leadership strategies assist youth to envision a positive future and plan the necessary steps they need to reach their goals.
In addition to the EMIY program, Good Fathers Only (GFO) was created to respond to the need to support and encourage fathers to be more active in the lives of children. GFO supports fathers to heal and provides the skills needed to parent more effectively. We share support resources for married, co-parenting, divorced, and/or single fathers, and grandfathers. Ultimately, by taking these steps we rebuild and strengthen the family structure through improved communications.
Advocacy through Action:
April 6, 2016 marked Respect Day Ground Zero. Launched in Detroit and growing beyond its boundaries of geographic, age, race, ethnicity, economics, and social status this movement is a result of EMIY Inc. taking action to empower and challenge every caring and concerned child, teen, and adult from all walks of life to EMERGE! We advocate for individual accountability and action. Starting with a simple pledge this approach to be accountable for our own words, beliefs, and deeds by design will bury the hate and raise RESPECT.
