To support under-served youth in the community by providing mentoring and other resources that are needed to assist them continuing their post-secondary education
was officially established in 2014 by a group of individuals who attended one of the historically black high schools in Charlotte; Second Ward, West Charlotte, and York Road. They were inspired by a number of mentors at each of the High Schools who were instrumental in motivating students to attend colleges and universities. In an interest of carrying on the traditions of these mentors, BMP was organized. BMP received its articles of incorporation and tax exempt status on August 15, 2015.
