African American Male Students

                              Are In A Crisis Nationwide

                                                           BFG, A Leadership Solution

 

 

 

 

                                                            Mentoring by positive male role models and fathers is paramount for African American                                                                     males.  Our interactive program gives minority students an opportunity to become positive

                                                            leaders, not followers.  The BFG leadership program is successfully navigating African

                                                            American male students away from self-destruction, low academic performance, school

                                                            dropout, gang activity, crime, bullying and the grim statistics of the penal system.

 

                                                            We are steering students toward high school diplomas, productive roles in society, careers

                                                            and post-secondary education.  Young males in our BFG leadership program discover

                                                            meaning, understanding, and purpose in their lives. Each session, students elevate to new levels of peace and harmony from within.  They set goals, find hope, purpose and move closer to their dreams.  Self-doubt and feelings of hopelessness are replaced with ambition and willpower.  Most importantly, students move functionally beyond emotional pain, anger, and the struggles of identity crisis that impede success.  The BFG program challenges young males to work harder.  We

raise the academic achievement bar high, because we do not except anything less.

 

 

 

                           Proactive Leadership Support Is Needed With Urgency

 

 

 

 

             Take A look At The Alarming Statistics

 

 

 

• A Black male has a 1 in 3 chance of going to prison in his lifetime compared to 1 in 17 for his white male counterpart.

• Homicides among African American males ages 15-19 represent one of the leading causes of death.

• 59% of Black males in their early 30s who dropped out of school had prison records.
• 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.
• 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.

• 72% of African American children are raised in single parent households.  

 

Children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in

poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools

and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.
