The inaugural Cohort of Champions training program involves educational, entrepreneurial, workforce, and enrichment training opportunities for 100 young men, ages 12 to 24. The COC Training Initiative is the next step to prepare our African American boys and young men for the future as well as to develop a trained, qualified and ready workforce.
The male collaborative of the MBSK initiative advocates and brings awareness to the current programs, services, and activities operating in St. Pete that uplift the economic status of black males in our community. The collaborative mentors the youth in the Cohort of Champions and also strategizes new ideas, new services, and new programs that build bridges to the needs of our community.
