Edward Dean CEO & Founder

Welcome Message

I sincerely appreciate your interest in Avengers Youth Mentoring Organization. I am proud to serve as the Executive Director as we execute our vision of creating a world where villages raise our children through mentoring, empowering them to be successful adults, and in turn, building loving compassionate communities.

Mentoring has been part of Avengers DNA for more than 12 years. Today, we have mentored over 3,000 youth in Metro Detroit and Houston Texas, developing engineers, med students, entrepreneurs, and police officers, just to name a few.

While our targeted population is underrepresented youth, our team is passionate about all youth.

Avengers home is in Detroit, Michigan. However, the heart is spreading across the nation, addressing the needs of all underrepresented youth and families.

Please take a moment and explore our website. I am sure you will see many examples of youth participating in our programs.
