The Sip event raises funds to support and develop programs that address the plight of young African-American and Latino-American men in the New York City area. The Wall Street Alphas, through the Alpha G.E.N.T.S. (Gaining Essential Networking Tools for Success) mentoring program, provides these young men with extraordinary life-changing experiences through a myriad of educational programs, college tours and lifelong mentoring. In addition to recognizing the graduating seniors of the GENTS program, this year’s Sip event will honor the following 4 distinguished men who mentor. #Sip4Mentorship
Jermaine Wright - Interim Director, CUNY Black Male Initiative
Stephen Powell - Executive Director, Mentoring USA
Charles Coleman - Founder, Edge NYC
Jerrell Horton - Founder, SUIT Dreams
Through events like Sip and the support of patrons and sponsors, the WSACF will provide resources and solutions to build intellectual and social equity among the underrepresented youth in impoverished communities. These resources are vital if we are to have a positive impact on the lives of our youth. We look forward to your support and presence at this year’s Sip event. #Sip4Youth
