Male Mogul Initiative, Inc. NFP

NGO mission: The mission of the Male Mogul Initiative, Inc. NFP is to positively transform the way young men live and lead in their communities through leadership and entrepreneurial development.

Grant purpose: Per the University of Illinois Chicago, 45% of African American men 18-24 are not working or in school. This is a big contributor to the violence seen in Male Mogul Initiative, Inc. NFP's Bronzeville neighborhood. Male Mogul Initiative, Inc. NFP will use the Hyatt Hotels Foundation’s grant to recruit, train, and collaborate with business owners and other entities to provide work placement for 160 young men in their community who are currently not working or in school.
