Supported by a grant from the City of Philadelphia to reduce the use of gun violence in the city, CMTEED (Changing Minds Through Education Exposure and Development) is dedicated to curbing gun violence in the City of Philadelphia. We believe in the power of mentorship to guide, inspire, and uplift the male students of OIC CADI for alternatives to what might be going on in their neighborhoods. We foster positive relationships by offering mentorship and various outside partnership opportunities.

We provide resources by paying students for their time to steer youth away from the cycle of violence.
