Tomorrow’s Black Men
Tomorrow’s Black Men, Inc. (TBM), is a 501c3 organization committed to developing young African American males in preparation for adulthood by providing necessary skills related to financial sustainability, academic excellence and social responsibility. TBM began in 2001 by introducing African American youth to the world of technology through partnership with the Nannie J. Lee Rec Center in Alexandria, Va.
Today TBM continues to be dedicated to the progression and overall success of young African American males by providing mentorship and community service opportunities through 2 programs, Positive Youth in Motion (PYM) and Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT). Targeting ages 13-15, (PYM) is a leadership program that provides a variety of positive educational and cultural activities that engage youth throughout the entire year. In 2010 LOT was created to promote student success through a focus on academic achievement, prevention and intervention activities, advocacy, social and career development. The program also offers the Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship, rewarding qualifying African American male high school students who have shown leadership academically, as well as in the community. Both efforts were established to help TBM achieve its vision of empowering young black males through education, self-determination and community building.
