We envision communities - that evolve into a world where Black Boys are educated, empowered, and inspired to make choices that best suit their talents and interests. "Black Boys deserve to live and grow old.
WE BELIEVE IN CHANGE
A place where we can change the generic vernacular of terms often not used within our community. A Fellowship.
Project T.H.U.G. targets adolescent black males in their Junior year of high school and senior year of middle school. Fellows who enter the program will participate in an 8-month intensive program – capped with a service program to graduate. The program will promote both aspects in which they often do not intersect. Promoting both education and vocation through a rather holistic approach. The fellowship focuses on what it looks like to create a well-rounded young man of valor. The idea is to plant seeds early on in hopes that they will one-day blossom and bear fruit in which our community will be able to harvest. Ultimately, the investment is long-term – but one that will create a cycle of young men coming back to cultivate their communities.

Project T.H.U.G is a Bipartisan non-profit organization designed to provide all adolescent Black Boys with access while simultaneously preparing our Fellows to maintain, thrive, and ascend inside of that access towards self-defined success.
Workshops occur every Saturday and Sunday until the fellowship finishes. Our workshop topics change every year in correlation with the final group project at the end of the year. Outside of physical workshops, Fellows are given an academic advisor – which they meet with twice a month in between workshops periods. Our fellows also engage in virtual bi-weekly development sessions.
How We Pick Our Projects
Service projects are picked once a year. These projects are created based on the immediate needs of the community.
Why Do We Focus On 8th and 11th Graders
Project T.H.U.G. targets two sectors of adolescent black males in their Junior year of high school and senior year of middle school. Young men who have aspirations of pursuing a degree – and young men who plan on entering the workforce through vocation. The individuals selected will participate in an 8-month intensive fellowship (two sessions a month) combining the two worlds while focused on the holistic development of the individual. It is his vision to develop well equipped young black men into beacons of integrity, character, service, and uplift.
