how can you help?

We’re working together as a community to Defend, Ignite, and Empower Potential in Littles across Muncie and East Central Indiana. We have several events coming up that you could support. Together, we are Defenders of Potential!


JANUARY 7 - APRIL 4, 2019

Based on information from the Indiana Youth Institute, in East Central Indiana, 26% of children live in a single-parent, female led, home. That means these young children are at risk of growing up without a positive male role model that will stand by them and empower them to reach their full potential.

Young men that are mentored by a caring male mentor are 55% more likely to enroll in higher education and more likely to avoid risky behaviors. We are ready to build the biggest possible future for our community. Together, we are Defenders of Potential.
