PDDBM champions the future's leaders, offering middle and high schoolers a platform to contribute to our PROUD magazine. Through this initiative, we aim to instill the virtues of diligence, innovation, and collaboration, vital for their future endeavors. PROUD magazine serves as a fertile ground for students to cultivate marketing, editorial, sales, journalism, and photography skills—essentials for their personal and professional growth.


Our program operates as a hands-on learning experience, allowing students to immerse themselves in various facets of magazine production. Beyond skill acquisition, it serves as a showcase for our nonprofit's impactful work, bridging education with advocacy.Under the guidance of our experienced editorial team, students receive constructive feedback and guidance. This mentorship not only nurtures their talents but also provides a platform for their unique perspectives to be shared with the world.


To ensure inclusivity, we invite sponsors to support vulnerable middle and high schoolers, granting them free access to this enriching program. This sponsorship isn't just financial aid; it's an investment in their potential, offering equitable opportunities and fostering a future where young voices are heard. Together, let's pave the way for a generation of empowered, articulate leaders who amplify their voices and make a difference in their communities.
