“18 months ago when Elijah joined the program, he was in a mindset where ┬áhe could have gone either way. Without a doubt THIS program has opened doors we couldn’t have imagined!”

– Parent of B.O.Y.D. Alum

As adults we seldom miss an appointment to take our automobiles in for preventative service. We regularly check the oil, the filters, and make sure our automobile is running properly to maintain optimum performance. We seldom take the same role of being proactive to ensure the well-being of our students in the inner city. We don’t regularly check their homework, visit their school, take our children to the library, or feed them proper nutrients to ensure that they are operating to their optimum performance.

Building Our Youth’s Development is committed to working with parents, community partners, and school administrators to ensure we address the needs of our at-risk youth. Please consider making a donation to BOYD today.
