Alchemy, Inc. was established as a non-profit organization in 2003 with a mission to assist urban adolescent males to develop a sense of purpose in life and successfully function as members of a family, school, and community. Alchemy is embraced by young men because of its authenticity and realness. Young males who are alienated, disengaged, and cynical toward life are drawn to our program because we offer a way to answer their "call to manhood." Alchemy does not question or criticize their masculinity, but repositions its positive aspects to show the way from boyhood to manhood. Although Alchemy imparts knowledge, it is more about cultivating wisdom. Our values are steeped in the character traits of "The Hero". The model of the Hero inspires youth to persevere, learn to make necessary sacrifices, overcome obstacles, and serve their community.
