Social Programs

Understanding the negative trends impacting black youth in our community (i.e., achievement gap, pipeline to prison, health, hunger, etc.), we are committed to leveraging our collective knowledge, time, and resources to help reverse these negative trends.  One of our goals is to provide or support social programs that empower and uplift Black youths and the community by connecting them to opportunities and experiences that enables them to reach their full potential, and to live better more productive lives.
