Causes: Arts & Culture, Children & Youth, Job Training, Performing Arts, Youth Development - Business

Mission: MISSION: To empower, mentor and develop urban inner city underserved youth and young adults into the next generation of music industry professionals; to celebrate the American art forms of Jazz and Gospel music, and be an advocate for military Veterans reentering civilian life and child hunger. VALUES: The whole person – We foster a mentorship/internship program that addresses mind, body and the essence of who they are. Discipline and order – Education is enhanced by a disciplined and orderly environment. Those in our mentorship/internship program will reflect order in their appearance, as we expect kindness, politeness, respect, and self-discipline. Excellence - Demonstrated academic achievement is a true basis for community leadership and gaining access to opportunity. Therefore any young person, regardless of their GPA, may participate in our mentorship/internship program, but we expect high standards of academic achievement and that their grade level will improve. We recruit outstanding professionals to instruct in their area of expertise and provide learning tools and resources of the highest quality, as well as encourage those who are in this program to seek to further their education at the college level, especially those who are in high school. Partnership – We believe collaboration can only strengthen achievement and bring together a broad spectrum of unique gifts and talents as it unites community. We look to foster collaboration wherever and whenever it makes sense.

Hello!
My name is Walter Ko and I'm a radio personality on G.O.D. (Gospel On Demand) Radio. An intern from MANDATE Project Impact has been engineering our shows and she has been doing an excellent job! She has been very professional, a quick learner, and a huge blessing to our team! I know MANDATE Project Impact has helped develop her into this major role on our show and I'm positive that they will continue to develop people into the industry! Thank you very much MANDATE Project Impact!

Music heals the soul, writing purges the heart and mind and sharing the recordings heals the community. MPI does that for the broken spirited, the hopeless, the weary and the "lost" youth of our community helping rejuvenate them into young lady's and gentleman who are resilient, hopeful, and productive members of our society who can have the opportunity to continue the legacy of MPI and continue to help heal our youth in the community.

MPI is a great nonprofit organization in the community and abroad. Some years back I had the opportunity to attend the Gospel Day at the San Diego Fair, it was amazing as well as an honor to have been there being from Texas. My husband and I are recently new to the state and MPI has been a blessing to us in so many ways. We are just honored to be apart of a nonprofit that is so positive in every way. Thank you MPI for allowing us to be apart and work along side of you all.

Where do I even begin? Mandate Project Impact has profoundly impacted my life in such a positive aspect. I began interning within the marketing department and it helped me learn more about social media marketing from a business perspective, as well as branding the business in a matter that would sell the products and portray the company in a positive light.

I've got to help out with being the assistant to the CEO during the Gospel Day at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and with that, I learned that management during an event requires long hours and plenty of clear communication, I had so much fun learning and experiencing management.

I've got the chance to work Jazz at the Creek Concert, three series, in the sales and promotion department. The environment is always positive and no matter what, if anything were to ever go wrong there would always be a way to fix it. The people from the staff at the venue and the record label are willing to help in any aspect.

And last but not lease, Bayside Gospel on the Midway! I was placed in the sales and promotion department and I had a fun time handling the artists merchandise and making connections with those who were in attendance. For an event like that to be on the Midway was astonishing!

I would choose MPI for the value of the lessons taught and the kindness of the staff. They helped me come out of my shell and I am forever grateful for that. I am such an introvert and learning from the staff at Mandate Records helped me become some sort of an extravert. The confidence that I grew within the company has made me want more for myself and the company.

I've been associated with MPI for over 20 years and I have seen the impact this non profit group has not only had on the city of San Diego, but in the Nation. This organization has reached out to teach and equip those who have an interest in the arts, and have provided a platform to express their talent. San Diego is all the better because of the involve the of MPI!

My name is Mauna Griffin and I am an intern within Mandate Project Impact, engineering radio program. Through this opportunity, I am currently the sound engineer for G.O.D. Radio. With this position, I have been able to learn about the technology and production involved in radio and sound engineering --something I've always had a passion in learning through the pursuit of music. Through MPI, I have been provided opportunities to attend and assist events, concerts, and festivals that I would otherwise not have the chance of experiencing first-hand. It is an amazing opportunity to be able to work in a recording studio, learning hands-on techniques in music production within the industry. MPI is important to the community because it provides people like me --who would not have the chance to pursue an education or career in music-- a chance to gain knowledge and experience in the arts. Their hearts for both the Lord and the people they serve are evident in their choices and actions. They make it an honor to work for them. It is their mission to serve the community with an open heart always. They truly represent and act out their name and that is why they deserve recognition and support: Making A Necessary Difference At The End.

The Southeast San Diego area in San Diego California has not been one of the greatest places to live in San Diego, however back in the day it was the place to be. Today, it is under going a great transformation with planned redevelopment being at the forefront of this change . Part of the redevelopment was to bring more positive African American cultural events and experiences. One of which is Jazz at the Creek. It is located in a central part of Southeast San Diego and is a cultural center for the community. Its tenants are non profits in the area. Downstairs is a great room where cultural breakfasts, business luncheons and beautiful galas are held. Across the way is the amount theater of sorts with stadium seating. This is where I first saw Mr Leonard Thompson. For a long time all of knew was he was the man that brought great jazz , gospel and events to San Diego. It wasn't until about a year ago that I got to meet Leonard, the man with a heart as big as San Diego. Leonard and u share a passion for helping people, but Leonard takes it to a new level. From the paid staff to volunteers to interns, Mandate Project Inc puts out a quality outdoor experience. No one walks away from a Jazz at the creek Concert or a Midway Gospel fest without talking about the quality of the artists. The professionalism it Leonard's team is amazing. Mandate Project Inc is bringing people and businesses of all walks of life, into a community that is once again going to be the place to be and Mandate Project is helping the community get there 1 event at a time. My employer supports Leonard and his endeavors because it is our way of giving back. I support MPI because they support our communities.
