The 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project aims to provide minority male students from grades three through 12 with positive role models and experiences that empower them to make good choices and encourage healthy living, responsibility, respect and achievement. The young men participate in various cultural and educational experiences such as visits to college campuses, etiquette workshops, and job and career training. The Project aims to improve academic performance, reduced truancy, referrals and suspensions, and increase pathways to success through mentoring and diverse experiences.

The CBCF ALC is the leading policy conference on issues impacting African Americans. Thought leaders, legislators and concerned citizens engage on economic development, civil and social justice, public health, and education issues.
