Creating a world where villages raise our children through mentoring, empowering them to be successful adults and in turn build loving, compassionate communities. As we influence the thought patterns of our youth we will change the world and create unlimited possibilities.

We are pleased to invite you to be one of the sponsors for underprivileged youth that can benefit from our programs. 

Avengers Youth Mentoring Organization is launching a sponsorship campaign to provide a safe haven with many mentors/coaches to expose youth to opportunities that can change their situation. 

Well, we’ve made it to the summer of 2021. COVID-19 managed to change the “normal” in about everything we knew, changing drastically some of the simplest things like how we communicate, stay connected, and engage.

Help us bring joy and laughter back to the youth. 

To sponsor a child, just click the link below and your sponsored child will receive unlimited access to our programs for the remainder of 2021.

In late 2009 Edward Dean looked around his Community and found his daughter surrounded by poverty and violence—something that, sadly, the city of Detroit has become iconic for. Edward knew that without writing an expensive check, his daughter would have no safe place to play and learn after school hours. He saw other families with children who had the same problem and realized that it was his duty to create an organization to “take back” or avenge youth from violence they had been born into. The Avengers were born. Since its inception, we have turned heads and grown rapidly, now serving over 1500 children in Detroit, Michigan, and Houston, Texas. The Organization offers sports programming and life skills education ranging from basketball to entrepreneurship education. In April 2010 “Avengers Youth Mentoring Organization” was officially recognized as a nonprofit 501(c)3 Organization in the 13th Congressional District of Detroit, MI.
