BYE-ond the Classroom 

Join the empowering movement with Black, Young and Empowered (BYE) weekly classes! These dynamic classes are specifically designed for youth between the ages of 8-16 and will ignite a passion for learning that will last a lifetime.

 

Each 12 week cohort costs only $15 per child and payment is due during enrollment. Please note that refunds will not be given, so be sure to commit fully to your growth and development. Participants can choose to sign up for multiple cohorts in advance to deepen their learning journey.

Spanning 10 weeks, each class is an immersive experience that is grouped into four cohorts, each with a specific focus area. You won't want to miss a single 90-minute session held virtually, where you'll learn from knowledgeable and experienced instructors who are passionate about empowering the next generation. Materials needed will be communicated in advance to ensure you're fully prepared and ready to learn.

Be inspired as you work alongside other young, brilliant minds, and participate in community-building activities. Don't miss the chance to reflect on your progress and celebrate your achievements with a project reflection at the end of each cohort. However, please note that any participants missing more than 3 classes per cohort will be discontinued from the program.

Join BYE today and become a part of a community that will lift you up, empower you, and help you unleash your full potential!

Golden Rules

Check it, listen up young Kings and Queens 

Here are the B.Y.E. rules

Respect is key, treat each other like jewels

Be on time and come with a smile

Ready to learn, and go the extra mile

Only miss three, and no more

Show up and be present, that's what we're here for

Fun is a must, bring your energy

Empowered and thriving, that's our synergy

 

At the end of the cohort, we'll have a project to show

Our growth and achievements, let it flow

So let's get it started, let's make it great

These are the B.Y.E. golden rules, don't be late!
