Black Men’s Challenge

online meeting

Black Men’s Challenge BPM is proud to announce a dynamic initiative to expose the impact of black men in our community. BPM is partnering with the community of Metro Baltimore to answer the challenge of increasing the presence and availability of Black Role Models, Teachers, and Mentors. As an organization made up of black men, we are aware of the impact of black men in our own communities. However, the narrative that is painted may not reflect our positive impact in our community. In addition, we understand there are some men that have been searching for a platform of positive men that act and feel the same way as they do and this is that platform. BPM is not here to reinvent anything new, but we will bring attention to the many great things our men are doing in the community. In most cases, our men are too busy working to showcase their actions to the public. This initiative is designed to bridge the gap from the seasoned generation, with a wealth of experience, to the younger generations to help them avoid unnecessary challenges. Black Men’s Challenge – How does it work? BPM is challenging Black Male adults to donate $20 towards our youth program and a minimum of 20 hours of their time per year in exchange for incentive packages that will benefit their career and professional development through access to the BPM Business Network. The tracking cycle is from September to August. The Donation: 50% of your donation will go towards our ‘Billion Word Challenge’ and fund a youth for a year of unlimited books, tracking of progress, and potential to strengthen the mind. 50% will go towards our efforts to ensure the future of our community. Community Service Hours: BPM is using an app to track the community service hours of our members and supporters. The goal for the community is to provide 25,000 hours of community service hours. The recommended individual goal is 20 hours and the breakdown of the categories are below: Community Enrichment – Minimum of 10 hours Any volunteer activity that impacts the community Personal/Professional development – Minimum of 5 to 8 hours It is critical that our men understand that building themselves up is also building our community up. Any activity that allows a man to increase his knowledge and/or experience can be used. Mentoring of another member – Minimum of 2 to 5 hours Any one-on-one activity with another black male that results in that black man gaining knowledge and/or experience can be used. Getting Started: All interested men will need to sign up to join our community service hour tracking app to login and track their time.

Billion Word Challenge

online meeting

Billion Word Challenge We have a lofty goal of changing the lives of youth through reading. One author pens this quote “Reading is to the mind what exercise is the body”, and we believe this to be true. We have decided to endeavor towards the one Billion Word Challenge, which is a national initiative centered in getting over ten thousand youth to participate in our reading program, and reading over one hundred thousand words. This program provides developing scholars with endless opportunities to read, listen and hear dramatized version of books. The software provided is an award winner software that engages not only youth, but their families in the cause of reading. Do you read for fun, pleasure, relaxation or to elevate your mind? In either case you will be covered. The greatest part is that the reading program is only $10 per year for unlimited usage, book, tracking of progress, and potential to strengthen the mind. We hope your will participate in our efforts to build the next generations leaders, who must be readers. Join the Billion Word Challenge!!!
