College Development

Men Reading to Our Children

To provide solid male role models for youth lacking a positive male presence in their home life and to help youth build self-esteem and address social issues. The goal is to expand this program to 100 schools within the city of Baltimore.

BPM would provide participating school with at least 50 books from a registered author. The school will issue the books to the participating students of the program.

The volunteering professional organization will read and discuss the book with the participating students.
One Saturday a month, the students from all schools will have the opportunity to participate in a group session to discuss the current book and topic.

The students will be able to use the BPM online tutoring network to further their interaction with other students and mentors.
Annually, there will be a week-long camp held at possible locations or on the campus of a local college or university.

Career Day

BPM has a partnership with the Mayor’s Office Employment Department (Youth Opportunity (YO!) Baltimore).

BPM will be conducting career days during the Youth Opportunity (YO!) Summer Program to youth that have been involved with the court system.

The purpose of the career day initiative is to expose the youth of the YO! Summer program to black professionals. In most cases, they only encounter professionals when they are entered into the court system.

Most of the youth involved in the YO! Program are youth that have made a few mistakes and is working to get back on track and prepare themselves for a better future.

Financial Literacy Program

BPM has a dynamic partnership with Operation HOPE, In. (HOPE) which offers the Banking On Our Future (BOOF) initiative.
The Financial Literacy program is being offered to schools in Baltimore City and surrounding areas to students who would like to increase their knowledge base on financial literacy.

The reality is that economic parity and the ability to compete financially, both at home and abroad on a global scale, are the building blocks of financial literary, and the foundation of the Civil Rights Movement of the 21st Century.

Vision Board Program

BPM is working to help our youth in understanding how to make and meet goals. The following key aspects support the Vision Board Program:
The program starts with the youth creating their six-month goals using a vision board.
BPM will work to get the youth closer to providing a clear answer to the most common questions.
What do you want to be when you grow up? A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal.
BPM helps the youth to work to articulate their vision through images that reflect what they want to do and have in life.
