Our Purpose

mentor for our purpose


The needs of the young men within are program are complex, multifaceted, and often vary on an individual basis. The cumulative effect of the time our staff, spouses, mentors and volunteers invest in our youth allow us to create lasting, impactful relationships. While setbacks and challenges are inevitable, our student-athletes know they have a community of people on whom they can rely for future support.


MOKAN has the capacity to connect youth in need of amended environments. Some of our most inspiring stories occur when a family opens their home and hearts. In addition to the basic care that every kid deserves, we believe that young men desperately need hope and stability. We work diligently to make those connections happen.
