Young Brothers Excelling Toward Achievement or Y-BETA is a program designed to empower and aspire youth toward higher education through the creation of self-awareness, avoidance of risk-taking behaviors and participation in positive self-esteem building activities.

The program is centered around C.H.A.R.A.C.T.E.R elements and creates positive interaction between young men and professional mentors who display all of the C.H.A.R.A.C.T.E.R. traits in which the program centers around. These "Mentors" help teach the young men positive skills that not only help the young men become successful but build men that build futures that will contribute to society and help them become "Mentors" for other young men as they grow.

Y-BETA teaches young men to strive for excellence by teaching them why they should know to guide them toward a productive future.
