About Us

Who We Are

Breaking Barriers is a local non-profit organization (501(c)3 that works closely with youth to help them realize their full potential. We work to teach skills that are useful in career paths including public speaking, financial responsibilities, and other skills that would also be helpful in becoming a fully functional member of society. We have numerous projects that attack different issues. For more detail on that, please see our "Projects" Page. 

Our Vision

We envision a society where all youth will have equal opportunities in education, employment and quality of life. 

We envision that our work will raise up a core group of leaders capable of making informed, responsible decisions and dedicated to community, equality and justice, who will, through service and leadership roles, have a positive impact on community. 

Breaking Barriers is an organization that works to break down multiple barriers:

  • Those that youth experience in their own lives

  • The societal barriers of racism, claim, and oppression, 

  • The barriers that separate people in our society

Our Mission

The mission of Breaking Barriers Mentoring, Inc. is to educate, uplift and support those who are directly and systematically impacted by incarceration.
