Cohort of Champions

The Cohort of Champions (COC) training program involves educational, entrepreneurial, workforce, and enrichment training opportunities for 100 young men and women, ages 12 to 15. The COC training initiative is the next step to prepare our African American young men and women for the future as well as to develop a trained, qualified and ready workforce. 

The co-ed 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 young Black men and women 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.
