Mentoring Leaders for Tomorrow

Commonwealth has operating partnerships with the following companies that provide mentoring to at-risk youth.


Second Chance 4 Youth

Second Chance 4 Youth is a national mentoring program dedicated to helping at-risk and incarcerated youth experience the American Dream. It is founded on four foundational tenets introduced to the early 1900 Black community by Booker T. Washington. By embracing of these tenets this community, during the 1940’s, 50’s and mid-60’s, led our nation in the growth of its middle class, the commitment of men to marriage, the percentage of entrepreneurs and the percentage of men matriculating from college.

Second Chance 4 Youth is a non-profit service organization founded by Burgess Owens, former All-Pro NFL Super Bowl Champion

Therefore, Sagamore helped incubate Elevate Indianapolis and continues as an operating partner.
