CENTER FOR BLACK EXCELLENCE AND EMPOWERMENT

Black Children & Youth Support

Black children and youth are often met with inadequate support and care and limited options in every aspect of life. Through this support program, we work with one on one and in group settings to identify their needs, skills and goals and develop strategies to address and meet these areas.

Our program uses an approach of empowerment in helping Black children and youth to gain confidence, identify and develop their inner strength, overcome inferiority complex, identify, and acknowledge their feelings about racism.  

This program offers:

  • Specialized services for Black children and youth in order for them to develop their inner strength, dismantle the inferiority complex born out internalized racism and other traumas such as generational family dysfunction, not limit themselves, so they can grow to become productive and successful individuals in the society.

  • A variety of career and entrepreneurship programs and services to keep Black youths safe while training them to become valuable contributing members of their community and society at large.
