Story by The Youth Development Committee
The Youth Development Committee, led by BPM Brother Hasson Diggs, is off to an incredible start! Despite just being formed in December 2013, the committee already has more than a dozen members, standing weekly meetings, has defined goals and has already created multiple press releases.
The Youth Development Committee is focused on implementing youth based programs and partnerships in support of the mission of BPM. YDC strives to create programs and partnerships (i.e., with Schools, Business, Professional/Civic Organizations, Fraternities, and the General Public) that target, build, and promote the youth in the community.
The YDC has several initiatives planned for 2014 and is looking for organizations that share BPM’s values. Brother Diggs believes that partnering with other organizations is an integral part of the future success stories that are written at BPM. Brother Diggs further believes that through partnerships, BPM can make a mark on the lives of the youth in the community. BPM hopes that you will join us as we continue to “light the torch” and inspire our youth to greatness throughout this exciting year.
