1,000 TIES WELCOMES YOU
Connecting Our Youth & the Business Community,
One Tie at A Time
1,000 Ties will enhance the quality of life for youth by teaching them skills they can use for a lifetime. With the help of men from the community young men ages 10-19 in high poverty rate cities will learn these skills. They will develop their confidence so that they can interview, network, and break the cycle of generational poverty starting with something as simple as a tie.

Jowan and the 1,000 Ties Life Skills Program has been the most impactful student engagement experience for our students this school year. Because of the experience, our students have demonstrated growth in the areas of social emotional well-being, academic learning and professional etiquette. This growth has been integral to the attendance success and graduation rates at all of our campuses. We are grateful, blessed and appreciative of Jowan's leadership and commitment to preparing our next generation of community professionals and leaders.
