"By taking matters into our own hearts and hands, we will build
brighter futures for and with our children."

Welcome to the new National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo
Monthly Newsletter!

The NBTEE mission is to:

* more effectively engage youth-serving organizations, youth-serving
individuals and community-based organizations;
* create greater awareness of and support for vital and valuable
youth resources; and,
* more consistently and creatively connect these resources to our
children, TEENS and young adults so more of them achieve in school and
succeed in life.

Every month, we’re reaching more than 33,000 supporters, most of
who work with or for youth, and care about our communities of
children.) and R. Lee Gordon of the NBTEE with a great group of young
men and women at a Brooklyn, NY youth event. (We'd also like to thank
Dominique Reese of CommuniTree, LLC (www.yourcommunitree.com) who
presented a wonderful FAME (fashion, art, music & entrepreneurialism)

About The National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo

The National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo (www.nbtee.org (
http://www.nbtee.org/ )) knows we have all the resources to improve
the quality of life and learning for our young generation. We focus
on community outreach (both off and online), collaboration building
and youth engagement to establish a youth resource network that will
create brighter futures every day. Live events, media and web and
mobile communication tools help us to actively connect to
youth-serving groups and individuals, and consistently connect these
resources to our youth.

If you are a youth resource, we'd like to help generate greater
awareness and support for your wonderful works; please click here to

Every day, community by community, we're building a national youth
movement to ensure the social and educational needs of our children
become a greater fulfilled priority.

Youth movements are volunteer-driven coalitions of incredible
individuals and great groups committed to working together to help
more children, TEENS and young adults achieve in school and succeed
in life.

Today, there are youth movements in Detroit, Baltimore and Brooklyn

The Better Detroit Youth Movement

We’d like to thank all the wonderful souls who took part in another
highly successful Million Father March on Labor Day. This important
initiative founded by Phillip Jackson of The Black Star Project
(www.blackstarproject.org ( http://www.blackstarproject.org/ ))
encourages men to accompany a child or children to the first day of
school. The Better Detroit Youth Movement uses this great event to
create greater community / parent / student interaction throughout the
school year.

More than 30 colleges and 1,200 aspiring students of higher learning
participated in The Third Annual Detroit Scholarship Fair at Cobo Hall
hosted by The BDYM and Infinite Scholars (www.infinitescholars.com).
Every year, this event awards millions of dollars in college
scholarships to deserving junior and senior high school students
throughout Southeast Michigan.

The BDYM is currently recruiting young men and women who want to be a
part of its Youth Advisory Board. For more information, and to learn
more about the BDYM, call Jay at 248.961.6419.
