About The Foundation
The Damon Cogdell Foundation believes that mentoring is all about selfless caring. Mentoring is an ongoing well-thought-out relationship between trusted and trusting individuals who grow and develop in a holistic partnership that includes emotional, social, spiritual, physical, and academic areas.
To become a beacon of hope for ‘at risk’ youth by establishing genuine relationships through successful role models that will mentor, guide, and support them.
To significantly contribute to nurturing youth in development of character and life skills to alleviate their most prevalent societal problems and leading them to become productive in their community.
Who We Are
Our focus is to change vulnerable youth from the inside to help them dream, establish life goals, and become productive in their communities.
Any organization’s success stems from the skills, commitment, and vision of the individuals who oversee it.
The Foundation’s mentoring program and services are designed to meet the needs of at-risk middle and high school students.
Our commitment is to reach at-risk youth wherever they are. However, we believe that outreach to the public school system and local communities is the most practical approach.
