Partnership with Youth Opportunity (YO!) Baltimore – Career Day Initiative
Black Professional Men has a partnership with the Mayor’s Office Employment Department – Youth Opportunity (YO!) Baltimore. We will be conducting career days during the YO! Summer Program. The summer program takes place June 23 to Aug 1 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (Monday – Friday). The purpose of the career day initiative is to expose the youth of the YO! Summer program to black professionals. In some cases, they only come in contact with professionals when they are entered into the court system.
Below is some additional information about the initiative. Please access the below link and complete the sign-up form for the program.
Why: This initiative allows BPM and our partnering organizations to impact the troubled youth of the City of Baltimore. Most of the youth involved in the YO! Program have made a few mistakes and are working to get back on track and prepare themselves for a better future.
What: Like-minded organizations and/or individuals that would donate an hour of their time to share information about your career to the youth in the program.
When: This initiative will be conducted during the YO! Summer program. The summer program takes place June 23 to Aug 1 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (Monday – Friday). Each participant will be given one hour to speak with the youth.
