Building Better Youth for Excellence (BBYE) is designed to offer youth an opportunity to shed cultural preconceptions, appreciate and capitalize on what the world has to offer. The program focuses at improving the educational aspects of each young person’s life as they venture into the real world. BBYE has many components that help young people gain awareness of their surroundings and understand that they share the same basic needs, emotions, and ways of communication that reveal the commonalities that link them all together.
BBYE youth are empowered to take responsibility for their actions, social and natural environment and to become leaders themselves.
The program has an annual camp/retreat that allows youth time to reflect and share ideas. The annual retreat is coordinated in collaboration with other organizations that form a coalition of youths from diverse backgrounds. It facilitates a sense of unity and collaborative partnership among young people.
Volunteers are needed to provide tutoring and homework assistance, for YOUTH ages 14 and younger, who need extra adult attention and guidance. The Commitment is 9 months for our school programs and 1 year for our Community Based Program. Orientation, Training, and Support will be provided to all volunteers.
