TYCOR Community Development Corporation, Inc.
Profile ( less )
TYCOR can be characterized as an organization of individuals whose mission is to provide underprivileged multi-racial youth and young adults between the ages of 9 and 99 the resources and training necessary to succeed in today’s competitive global business environment with no capital other than a spiritual commitment or sense of destiny to do what they seek and desire to do it. TYCOR then aids in incubating that dream. Not a normal business incubator, TYCOR provides experience and expertise from successful business persons who act on our advisory team and we provide one-on-one assistance in moving their goals forward.
We focus on American Indian, African American, Hispanic and all other minority and dominant society individuals with an emphasis on females who tend to inwardly seek the non-ordinary means and methods for personal development because they have found that the norms do not apply. All of our "clients" function "out of the box".
Our primary goal is to offer a supportive "hand-up" to educate, train and mentor to provide the necessary skills for these exceptional youth, young and adults to be tomorrow’s leaders. They will gain a real-world education in the basic workings of the free enterprise system, global economics and an awareness of opportunities for self-employment as well as the benefit of acquiring skills for the workplace and life. TYCOR believes that by challenging the entrepreneurial spirit of young people in a more positive direction, many can be inoculated against the lure of the streets, rise beyond their at-risk environment, poverty and can serve as unique, positive role models for their peers. TYCOR’s philosophy can best be described by the Ode “The Bridge Builder” which is included in this profile.
