FREE INSPIRATION REACHING EVERYONE  (F.I.R.E.) WELCOMES YOU

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

At F.I.R.E. we’re raising funds and promoting initiatives to serve the people who need them most especially opportunities for our youth. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness about some of the most pressing issues facing today’s society. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others.

WELCOME TO THE FIRE

F.I.R.E. AT A GLANCE

A Distinct Identity

F.I.R.E. knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives as well as from the help of our volunteers. Formed by friends and coworkers in 2015; Emil Acolatse and Syed Naqvi at ExxonMobil began their work in varies communities through city of Philadelphia. They were involved in community homeless outreach and workshops to empower and encourage the youth. In 2016, our Nonprofit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Free Inspiration Reaching Everyone (F.I.R.E.). We have a responsibility to our community and the youth to help them provide the resources and experiences for future opportunities.

The Forge is young men's mentorship program for at risk youth in Philadelphia where we meet every Wednesday physically or virtually since 2018. We hold in field activities thursdays or weekends
The program initiative is mentoring exclusively young males who come from vulnerable, disparaging situations and environments, to form a fraternity experience. 
The Forge is based on the premise of brotherhood for young black and brown boys to establish meaningful connections with older male mentors who can offer experience, guidance, wisdom, and serve as positive male authoritative figures, in the absence of. The concept is to have youth mentor youth, while under the guidance of male leaders in efforts to create a comradery among young males to rely, support and honor one another.
