Black Men with a Purpose is a non-profit organization, focused on identifying at risk youth in the community and assisting them as positive role models and mentors.  The objective is to provide guidance to assist them in maintaining their academics through the completion of high school and seek enrollment in a post High School academic curriculum. The organization will accomplish this by providing hands on involvement and financial support to eligible students. The organization will strive to be involved with the political process at the local, state and national levels, and involved with social issues locally.

Our Vision


To give every High School student desiring to pursue higher education an opportunity to succeed financially in their pursuit of a degree.
