The 5000 Role Models of Excellence project was initiated by the Miami-Dade County School Board in March 1993, due to the crisis in the lives of many young males. The project’s mission is to intervene in the lives of at-risk boys, in order to provide them with alternatives that will lead them away from a life of crime and violence. The 5000 Role Models of Excellence continues to fulfill its mission of guiding minority boys along a chartered path to manhood and sending them to college.
