HISD's 'Ascending to Men' project aims to provide mentoring

Statistics show that 1 in every 15 African American men and 1 in every 36 Hispanic men are incarcerated in comparison to 1 in every 106 white men. Additionally, African American and Hispanic males under-perform academically in comparison to their peers in almost every category -- especially in reading and math. A couple of groups is working to make sure these young men get the support they need so they can grow up healthy and become productive citizens of Houston.
