Mission: Our mission is: To better prepare our youth for the many challenges they will face in their everyday lives, while also enhancing the overall development of our communities as a whole. PSYM is dedicated to providing our youth the critical foresight needed to heighten their awareness, stimulate their motivation, and focus their attention towards obtaining total preparedness. Our youth must realize the vital importance of "preparedness" in order to overcome the sometimes devastating factors of life, that too often, prevent many from reaching their fullest potential today and in their future lives. Our goal is to help our youth to become successful and contributing members of our society. And most importantly, become "positive" role models for other aspiring youth today, as well as those in future generations to come.Each component of our program is designed towards making a positive impact in the lives of all youth participants, while also enhancing the overall development and relationship among our ethnic, our elderly, and our business and government communities as a whole.
Pelican State Youth Movement have grown from conducting a basketball camp to being a non-profit organization and one of the most recognized organizations in Morehouse Parish. We have established a scholarship fund for the memory of Ms. Inez Grant, that is awarded to 2 school aged students each year, with appropriate grades and have participated in our annual camp that is dedicated to her. Our organization have also donated to many needed causes in Morehouse Parish and provide Afterschool Funding to several schools on an annual basis.
Our lastest involvement, have been at Henry V, Adams Elementary School, where we presented a Junior Fire Marshall Safety instructions to about 70 kids. We donated funds to Mayor Betty Olive for her program Miracle Memory Fund for helping families in need for the holidays.
