Since 1975, Concerned Black Men – National Organization (CBM) has been providing out-of-school enrichment and prevention programs to African American children from disadvantaged communities. Through the work of a nationwide network of chapters located in 32 U.S. cities, and in Pretoria, South Africa, and an experienced and credentialed National Staff located in Washington, DC, CBM conducts programs and projects to support youth and strengthen their families. A male services organization that proudly wears its grass roots heritage, CBM was founded in 1975 when several Philadelphia police officers sponsored social events for kids at-risk to gang violence. The vision of CBM’s founding members has expanded to include children and their parents nationwide, but the philosophy of men offering themselves as positive role models to children has remained CBM’s mission for more than a quarter of a century.

Mission: We, the members of the National Organization of Concerned Black Men, Inc., have committed ourselves in support of the social, emotional, academic and psychological development of African American youth. We offer ourselves as role models and pledge to help our children aspire to lofty goals and expectations. We pledge to protect, instruct, nurture and discipline --- to trust, share, honor, and above all --- to be there when needed. We will teach our youth that men and women build institutions and do not engage in self-destructive behavior. We will show our Nation’s youth how to direct their energies to positive activities of benefit to all, and remind them that respect for self and others is expected of men and women of distinction. We will provide community leadership and encourage this society to place our children’s needs first. In caring for our youth, we take our responsibility seriously, and will remember that the future of our children depends on our success.

For the past week, we have been posting about the importance of the work we do at CBM of America to Care for our Youth and strengthen our families. Today is #GivingTuesday, and we hope you will consider a donation of $5 (or more!) to help support the work that we are doing. Give today via our facebook campaign: https://www.facebook.com/donate/10100514994738743/.

In addition to your treasure, we also would like to ask you to consider giving of your time and talents. If you would like to sign up to be a volunteer, a mentor or have other talents you can offer to support youth and families in your city, we’d like to hear from you. Together, all of us can ensure a secure future for young people of color in this country.

Many around the country are feeling unsettled in the weeks post-election as Cabinet appointments are made and Washington, DC gears up for the inauguration. Now, more than ever before, the work of CBM of America -- assisted by our partners, mentors, volunteers and supporters around the country -- is critical. It is up to us to rally to save our communities and improve the quality of life for all of those within it. As we look ahead to 2017 and beyond, we will need your help more than ever. Consider sharing and giving to support our mission tomorrow and join with us in the fight for our youth and our families. It takes a village to raise just one child; it will take all of us together to secure the future for all of our children. #GivingTuesday

Are you tired of Thanksgiving leftovers yet? Here’s something to chew on: According to a 2016 Grad Nation report, there’s almost a 15% difference in the graduation rates between White and African-American students. Support our mission of Caring for Our Youth by donating this #GivingTuesday to help us close the gap.

As people head to the malls and department stores for Black Friday finds, we are reminded that the best deal you’ll get this holiday season is an investment in the future of our youth.

We are truly thankful for all of the mentors, volunteers, partners and other supporters who have brought us this far. We know that without you all, we would not have been able to make such an impact in the lives of young people across the country. Thank you for all of your support. Happy Thanksgiving!

CBM Mentor video

In the 40 years since CBM’s founding, we have offered a number of initiatives geared towards restoring families and helping provide a stable future for youth of color across the country. One thing that has remained constant is our commitment to mentoring young people to help promote healthy development.

In the past, we’ve been hyper focused on boys, who traditionally see the greatest achievement gaps with other groups. However, we realize how much support our girls of color also need. Your #GivingTuesday gift will help us broaden our emphasis to provide these opportunities to all young people in our community.

CBM of America SLAM Video

As we gear up for #GivingTuesday, which is happening one week from today, we are reflecting on all of the ways we’ve given of ourselves to support the community over the years. For instance, our Saving Lives and Minds after-school program introduced students to a free STEM enrichment program, which provided exposure to coding, principles of game design and engineering.

Our SLAM program is currently on hiatus, in part due to a lack of funding. Consider giving this #GivingTuesday to help us reintroduce programs that will enrich the lives of our youth across the country.
