RICHMOND, Va. -- The Broken Men Foundation, a Richmond non-profit organization that helps young men use the pain of their past to impact their community and lead in a positive way, celebrated a recent class of graduates from its youth academy.

The young men, who range in age from 12 to 18, completed a 16-week program aimed at helping them become better men through academic achievement, the establishment of social skills, and community involvement.

The non-profit was created in 2014 and is led by men from all walks of life hoping to make a positive impact on the next generation of men.

"We want to make sure that we're talking about life-coping skills and different things and make sure these young men make better decisions. To make them live for another day," founder and president Ellery Lundy said.
