It is no secret that there is a dire need for clearly identifiable community leaders within communities in Massachusetts ’ metropolitan cities. More and more news reports give us news of the incredible odds that minority/immigrant youth face to succeed in an ever more difficult time and under increasingly challenging circumstances. But there are some who refuse to accept the status quo and are steadfast in their continued efforts to make a difference in the lives of our young ones. They are not intimidated by the overwhelming statistics and odds that they face pursuing such a noble cause. They are a group of friends and relatives who have joined their efforts and have launched a program called M.YH.O.O.D. (Mentoring Youth Hold Onto Obtaining Dreams, Inc).
The group is headed by six co-founders:
Samuel Soares Rodrigues, Alzira Rodrigues, Nelson Soares Rodrigues, Sam Suneus, Celso Ribeiro, and Nilton Depina. The group came together in September, 2008, after having identified a need for more community based educational and recreational structured activities led by individuals who seek to cultivate strong positive values, moral responsibility and determination to succeed among the youth. M.Y H.O.O.D (Mentoring Youth Hold Onto Obtaining Dreams, Inc) incorporated as a not for profit organization on April 30, 2009. M.Y H.O.O.D (Mentoring Youth Hold Onto Obtaining Dreams, Inc) reaching out to all communities in the hopes of not only supporting the youth but also strengthening the bonds of cooperation among the many different racial groups and ethnicities within Massachusetts.
