ABOUT US

Young Soldiers Success Group Inc. (YSSG) is a unique Afro-Caribbean-led non-profit organization based out of Salem, Massachusetts whose purpose of existing is to invest time, resources, and tools in the young men of color in their community. Through YSSG's core values and guidance, we produce leaders who are confident, cultured, cultivated and self-sufficient. These past few years, YSSG has been highly aware of the vast changes that have been occuring throughout the Salem Public Schools regarding the student demographics. Salem is now a racially and ethnically diverse district, with 57% of our student body being classified as being non-white. We believe it is imperative that these students have a strong support system from leaders who grew up in Salem that also represent and relate to their culture. YSSG has met with school faculty and staff, parents, Salem residents and city officals and they have all emphasize that Salem needs an organization like YSSG for the youth.
