What does it mean to be a man—not just legally, but ethically, morally, emotionally, and spiritually? How does a young person today come of age in our fast-paced, info-overloaded, materialistic, and highly technical American culture? And most important, what role do adults play in helping boys assume the mantle of manhood?
The Elliott-Chandler Foundation seeks to provide critical assistance and support to young men who are demonstrating a desire to excel in the area of academics and pursue a degree from a higher learning institution with ultimate hopes of becoming a leader of tomorrow.
1) Financial assistance through scholarships
2) Support through a mentoring program. Truly, financial assistance is paramount in this endeavor, but without the solid foundation of mentorship and guidance, positive change and effectual vision cannot take place.
ECF founders, Ronald and Regina Jackson share the journey on founding the Elliott Chandler foundation, their vision, and the mission they set out to achieve!
