Courtyard Mentor Network

The Courtyard Mentor Network helps adolescent males in Philadelphia develop long-term goals and provides them the necessary support to achieve them. We accomplish this by introducing the boys to various industries and connecting them with mentors who can guide them along their chosen career path. We also provide them a robust relationship skills curriculum—Real Essentials Advanced—through our partnership with the Norristown Men of Excellence.

Launched in Spring 2021, Courtyard Mentor Network classes are based at Queen Village’s Courtyard Apartments at Riverview.  Off-site mentorship classes and other events add educational enrichment. Read about CMN in the Queen Village Quarterly Crier. See us in action on Instagram.

Courtyard Mentor Network is funded exclusively through contributions.  As a fiscally sponsored program of QVNA, your donation provides the association’s nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax advantages.
