C.O.T.T.O.N. Mission Statement


Our mission is to increase self worth, self esteem, self knowledge, mental wellness, and leisure outlets for young African Americans ages 14 to 24 years old, in and outside of the LGBTQ+ community. The goal is to decrease risk and harm by increasing access to mental health support, safe spaces, community resources, cultural outlets, and wellness services.  


C.O.T.T.O.N. will deliver a comprehensive curriculum to increase their knowledge of self,  past and present successors, identify role models, develop goals and objectives towards success, and linking them to mentors in their communities.
