Young Men on Tour: Shaping the Leaders of Tomorrow

In Harford County, a remarkable program has been quietly making a profound impact on the lives of young men for over a decade. Young Men on Tour (YMOT), founded by the visionary Mr. Zeno Jones at Aberdeen Middle School, stands as a beacon of hope, guidance, and empowerment for hundreds of students. This week, Harford County Living is honored to feature YMOT as our Nonprofit of the Week, celebrating their unwavering commitment to nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.

A Journey of Mentorship and Growth: YMOT is more than just a mentoring program; it’s a transformative journey that guides young men through their formative years with care, wisdom, and an unwavering belief in their potential. Under the mentorship of Mr. Jones and other dedicated mentors, students are provided with a supportive environment that fosters personal and academic growth.

Building Foundations for Success: The cornerstone of YMOT’s success lies in its comprehensive approach to mentorship. The program offers individual mentoring and support, ensuring that each young man receives personalized guidance tailored to his unique needs and aspirations. Academic support is also a key focus, with mentors working closely with students to enhance their focus, improve their grades, and set ambitious educational goals.

Expanding Horizons: YMOT believes in the power of exposure and experience. Through their guest speaker series, students have the opportunity to hear from a diverse array of professionals, gaining insights into different career paths and life lessons. The program’s free field trips, which include college tours and visits to cultural landmarks, play a crucial role in broadening students’ perspectives and inspiring them to dream big.

Empowerment Through Discipline: A unique aspect of YMOT is its incorporation of martial arts into the program. These free group martial arts experiences are not just about physical fitness; they are lessons in discipline, respect, self-control, and perseverance. Through martial arts, students learn valuable life skills that extend far beyond the dojo.

A Legacy of Leadership, Education, Relationship, and Growth: At its core, YMOT is built on the pillars of Leadership, Education, Relationship, and Growth. The program’s mission is to equip young men with the tools they need to navigate life’s challenges, build meaningful relationships, and achieve their fullest potential.

Join the YMOT Family: As we celebrate Young Men on Tour as our Nonprofit of the Week, we invite the Harford County community to support this incredible program. Whether through mentorship, donations, or simply spreading the word, your involvement can make a significant difference in the lives of these young men.
