About the Anomaly Project
1. something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected.
The mission of this program is “to teach young men the principles of becoming responsible and respectable young men as well as effectively equipping them with the necessary tools to excel beyond standard expectations of economic, social, and educational limitations”, that will position them as not only leaders within their communities but as strong, successful and confident men.
The program begins with a weekend camping trip to the Resort at Masseys Landing RV Retreat and Campground during which the young men are exposed to interactive workshops that focus on the importance of personal health and responsibility, team building, critical thinking and achieving ones dreams. Throughout the camp and program the young men will be introduce and paired with positive and professional role models within the communities that they live in.
