Not My Son

Not My Son (NMS) is a grassroots community outreach marketing campaign and intervention effort to assist African American male youth and young adults, (12-24 years of age) in the City of St. Petersburg under the MBSK umbrella. The primary goal is to promote positive achievement and anti-crime awareness. We solicit your support as we strive to serve notice that education, opportunities, and positive relationship are the formula for hope in our community. There are two ways to get involved:

  1. Take the Not My Son pledge.
  2. Join us for a Community Intersection Rally. Each Friday during the summer break we will take our message of "Enough is Enough" to the streets of St. Pete with the simple goal of building relationships and encouraging others.
