While our target population is Black men and youth, we also engage the overall Black community and partner with other ethnic/racial/cultural community groups. We have consistently focus on grassroots community organizing by using fun and interactive events, workshops and activities that foster the development of life skills for students in elementary, middle and high school as well as adults of color in team building, leadership, goal setting, employment, navigation of systems etc. One of our focuses is developing current leadership while also cultivating the next generation of community leaders and organizers.
