Connect Educate Advocate
Building The Next Generation of Leaders:
( Note: Scroll down for the MentorPoint Recordings )
We are committed to educating, connecting, honoring and advocating for our boys and men while preparing black boys through entrepreneurship training and leadership development opportunities. Our vision is to bridge the economic gap while building capable men and leaders of the next generation.
The black boys are unequally stigmatized, marginalized and criminalized and without support, they are likely to grow up to have the lowest earnings, have less education, suffer from unemployment and even die prematurely. Research shows that our communities are damaged directly or indirectly by these outcomes.
Inspired by a quote from Frederick Douglas, we believe that it is easier to build a boy than repair a broken man.
Since inception in 2014, we have worked with various allies to achieve our mission. We welcome you to partner up with us. Together, we will achieve our mission of developing our boys into great men, leaders and future job creators. Please see "About Us" for our mission, vision and successes.

Black Boys' Entrepreneurship Program ( BBEP )
The BBEP is an 8-month leadership and entrepreneurship training program designed to help the black males ( ages 14 to 18 ) to build professional skills including leadership, communication, presentation, collaboration, design-thinking and critical thinking skills. BBEP is designed to develop creative solutions to the various problems that exist in society. The goal of the program is to close the skill and knowledge gap and foster the next generation of business leaders, job creators and employers.
