As the first program facet to be created, Services to Youth aimed to equip black youth to use their intellect and spirit of achievement to become successful and productive citizens. Today, we continue to implement aligned, integrated and transformational programs that are responsive to the academic, health, cultural, social awareness, career development, and mentoring needs of youth.

The Services to Youth facet continues to implement three national initiatives, two signature programs and two national programs in support of our mission to enrich and enhance the lives of black youth.


The primary goals of this facet are to:

  • Close the achievement gap from pre-K through college, with the intent of preparing our youth for the global workforce as healthy citizens

  • Promote the integration of a health and wellness component focused on youth, families and communities in our Services to Youth programs

  • Develop training modules for local pre-K through college mentoring programs, to ascertain a high level of support for youth in our communities

  • Expand and support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education and promote the integration of the arts (STEM to STEAM)

  • Promote and support historically black colleges and universities for ensured sustainability
