Economic Mobility Program


The Annie Malone Economic Mobility Program (EMP) is dedicated to empowering boys aged 16 to 21 by providing them with comprehensive support for academic achievement, job training, and mental health resources. This unique program is designed to break the cycle of adversity and promote economic mobility. The participants reside on campus from Sunday night through Friday night, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in a structured and nurturing environment conducive to learning and personal development. During the weekends, they return home to strengthen familial bonds. The EMP is strategically crafted to address the root causes of high school dropouts, incarceration, violence, and homelessness, fostering a holistic approach that uplifts not only the individuals but also their families. The Annie Malone EMP strives to pave the way for a brighter future and break down barriers to success for these young men.
