Black Dot Youth Empowerment Program

We can never surrender our children's education

Mission Statement:

The Black Dot Youth Empowerment Program is dedicated to empowering young individuals through culturally relevant books, transformative seminars, and the celebration of black stories by black authors for black children. Our mission is to foster pride, resilience, and leadership skills in our youth while promoting a love for literature that reflects their experiences and cultivates a strong sense of identity and belonging.


The Black Dot Youth Empowerment Program is a transformative initiative that places a strong emphasis on empowerment through culturally relevant books and seminars. We recognize the power of literature to uplift and inspire young minds, and thus our program revolves around providing access to diverse and culturally significant books that resonate with our participants.

Through engaging seminars, workshops, and discussions, we delve into the rich tapestry of African American history, culture, and experiences. Our goal is to create a safe and inclusive space where young individuals can explore their identity, celebrate their heritage, and develop a strong sense of self.


By participating in the Black Dot Youth Empowerment Program, young individuals have the opportunity to engage with thought-provoking literature written by Black authors. These books not only provide representation but also serve as mirrors that reflect their own experiences and windows into the experiences of others. They foster a sense of pride, belonging, and cultural appreciation, empowering our youth to navigate the world with confidence and resilience.


In addition to empowering books, we offer a series of seminars and workshops led by knowledgeable and passionate facilitators. These sessions cover a wide range of topics, including personal development, leadership skills, cultural awareness, and social justice issues. Through interactive discussions and activities, we encourage critical thinking, self-reflection, and the development of a strong moral compass.
