Our impact is measured in the information we gather in the lives we change.
Our work is premised on increasing the number of students who enter and complete the program.
We collect data and measure our impact rigorously. But our impact is also measured in the smile on a student’s face when they receive an acceptance letter, a parent’s tears of joy when their child becomes the first in the family to attend college, and the lasting generational inspiration and impact that a college education provides.

The United Black Men of Queens Foundation, Inc. (UBMQ) has expanded our service to the youth of our community and introduced new programming.
We have added Conflict Resolution, Entrepreneurship, Podcast, Social & Emotional Intelligence, Robotics and Coding sessions into our mentoring program,.
Additionally, we are teaching our scholars how to develop and host their own podcast, which has allowed us to triple the number of scholars we reach. Through another new initiative, we are conducting mentoring sessions with 40 middle school scholars from 20 different schools. Job preparedness training has just started. This partnership will highlight job shadowing and paid internships for our high school seniors. Furthermore, Health and Wellness Town Hall meetings are being planned in which we look to present a series of Covid19 informational sessions and addressing other health issues impacting our communities.
We are seeking the financial support of the Spectrum Foundation for our mentee driven Podcast Program (Young Black Inspiration). With your help we can continue making a positive impact, reach thousands of youth and be the agents for positive change in our communities.
We appreciate your full consideration and look forward to your support.
