The Ellis Effect
At YAMM, we are committed to helping young men make the transition from boys to young men. Our program, The Ellis Effect, provides guidance and support to boys ages 12-16 during this important time in their lives. We help them build the skills and confidence they need to face the world and become successful men.
The Ellis Effect also provides a platform for these young men to represent YAMM in public appearances, giving them an opportunity to give back to their communities and to serve as positive role models for other young men. We are proud of the progress they make and the positive impact they have in their communities.

Preparing a meal
