Begun in 2007, the Just Say Yes! Program is a CBM youth development program that sponsors workshops and field trips to promote positive self-esteem, cultural awareness, physical fitness, and entrepreneurship. The program usually meets on the first and third Saturdays of every month and includes activities such as basketball, discussions, movies, bowling and sessions on achieving academic goals, physical fitness, nutrition and diet, art, poetry, music and history. The Just Say Yes! program addresses the urgent need for black male mentors in the community. As a society, we teach our kids to just say, "No" to negative influences. Our CBM program gives the children the option to just say "Yes!" to positive life choices.
