As a result, these youth behave seemingly devoid of accountability, but may simply be mirroring how society and its institutions treat them. The B-Boyz 2 B-Men Leadership Academy is seeking to identify solutions and approaches that go beyond targeting the at-risk individual.
The B-Boyz 2 B-Men Leadership Academy, using the VRE(Value-Relationship-Execute)concept, seeks to improve communities by increasing the number and diversity of young people, ages 5 through 25, serving in important roles. The academy will develop problem-solving skills, deepen academic engagement, enhance academic achievement, increase a student’s sense of personal commitment and social responsibility.
The impact the B-Boyz 2 B-Men Leadership Academy looks to achieve within the community is to be able to enable, equip and empower the feelings of young men who live in at-risk environments, to look toward of community connectedness, and reduces engagement in risky behavior. The outcome will contribute to higher reported levels of academic success, graduation rates, positive civic behavior, and self-esteem. Our motto is "If a young man can pull up his MIND, his PANTS will follow!"
