Greetings all!

We take extreme pleasure in informing you that the Concerned Black Men of Richmond held our 1st in-person activity in 25 months!

They were a very engaged group of young men.  We had each participant to state their name, school, grade level and as well as a hobby or area of interest.  The majority of the group has interest in engineering or other science related fields!  The mentees also discussed how the pandemic has affected them.  Each of them was given a McDonald’s gift card for participating.

 The Concerned Black Men of Richmond are looking forward to tailoring our next session to address the aspirations of our youth. 

Thank each of you for your interest and assistance in providing quality programs for the young men in our community.  It means the world to our community and the youth we serve.

Greetings all!

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond kicked off 2020 with a Career Options activity.  It was conducted on January 11th at Franklin Military Academy and was well attended. 

This year we concentrated on IT, Engineering and Armed Services as options.  Oliver Norrell, a current CBM mentor started off by discussing the requirements and benefits of entering the military.  He explained how he was able to go to college and obtained a law degree from the University of Richmond through the military.

Oliver also talked about the different types of lawyers in the military as well as in civilian society.

Winford Hill, a former CBM mentor has a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and currently works with US Department of Defense. 

Career Choices 2020

He explained the different types of engineering and the path that he took to achieve his career goals. Winford currently specializes in guidance systems and elaborated on how a career in engineering has afforded him the opportunity to work in other countries as well.

 

Next, Dondre Green and Charles Hill spoke about a career in the Information Technology field.  They both work as IT Logistic Analysts for a government contractor supporting the Army’s logistic software and users.  They both have served in the armed forces and explained the pros and cons of certifications as opposed to formal college education.

We concluded the program with Kevin Carter, a current CBM mentor and former presenter for the Career Options event.  He is an engineer with Dominion Energy and has a degree in accounting.  Kevin elaborated on how an internship program got him in the door with Dominion Energy and that led him to an engineering position.

 

Career Choices 2020

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond diligently seek out ways to motivate and inspire our boys.  There are several young men who have expressed interest in these fields, so we found some great examples for them to rub shoulders with and ask any questions that may assist them on their journey. 

Thank you to each of you who have supported us as we endeavor to provide our youth with programs that promote positive role models for them to emulate. It means the world to us and the youth that we serve.

Sincerely,
Tim Mallory,
President CBM-RVA

Greetings all!

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond started the 2019/20 session with an orientation meeting on September 14th at Franklin Military Academy.  The history of the organization was given along with an introduction of the mentors in attendance.  We provided the parents and guardians with a summary of last year’s activities and a calendar for this session.  The mentees then introduced themselves and reviewed the code of conduct for the mentees. 

Orientation 2019

Last March, the Concerned Black Men of Richmond conducted a “Baseball Fundamentals” clinic with The Metropolitan Junior Baseball League.  They have a relationship with a baseball team in the Bahamas that was severely impacted by Hurricane Dorian and were conducting a supply drive at The Diamond on Arthur Ashe Boulevard.  We reached out to Coach Husband and asked for a list of the supplies that they were requesting.  The Concerned Black Men of Richmond donated several cases of peanut butter to assist them in their relief effort.
