Kentucky Mentor Program Helping At Risk Youth Dress For Success & You Can Too
Everyone deserves to look and feel their best. Breaking The Cycle Mentor Program here in Owensboro is making sure our youth have this exact opportunity and you can help.
WHAT IS BREAKING THE CYCLE MENTOR PROGRAM?
The mission of this program is to help at-risk youth by providing them with the resources they need to be successful in life. The program began in 2020 and has been growing since through the hard work and dedication of the founding members and the community.
These are just a few of the activities they offer:
Confidence Building workshops
They often make use of Dugan Best Recreation Center in Owensboro as a meeting place. This building is an excellent resource for our community.
The leaders make sure and plan activities that focus on hot button topics among our youth.
The goal is to ensure the youth in our community make better choices and do not engage in activities that could cost them their freedom or even worse their life.
HOW YOU CAN HELP "DRESS FOR SUCCESS"
Their motto: When you look good, You feel good, You perform Good.
Dressing up does something for your confidence. Putting on a nice dress or suit can literally change your whole attitude.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY
Angel here and I have watched the founders of this organization come alongside our youth and lift them up and encourage them to be better. It's amazing what the ideas of a few can accomplish. With the help of our community we can do even more. This program is taking at-risk youth and showing them they have bigger, better, smarter choices to make in life.
