YBM Top Scholars Program


YBM Leadership Alliance created the Top Scholars Young Black Men program to combat the disproportionate amount of negative information and stereotypes being disseminated about young black men. The centerpiece of the program is the production and distribution of a full color, glossy publication that highlights 100 of the top black, male high school seniors who are leaders, achievers and an inspiration to their peers and younger students in the Charlotte area.
