About Black Youth Alliance - Wisconsin

BYA-WI.png

Black Youth Alliance - WI started back in 2017, when our Executive Director, Robin Scott, learned that less than 1% of our youth were enrolled in after-school programming. She then began working to establish a safe and unapologetic space where our black youth could learn their history, increase their self-advocacy, and become more positive participants in healthy relationships.

Our current curriculum consists of 28 weeks of after school programming for over 150 middle and high school aged youth.  Since 2017, when Black Youth Alliance - WI was started we have seen tremendous success. Throughout this 28 week program we have found that 75% of all participants complete the full program. When you factor in transiency into these rates, (i.e., families moving around the city, into different cities, being homeless ect) 90% of our youth fully complete the program.

"We do it for the youth."
-Robin Scott

Our inspiration for We All Rise: African American Resource Center came from our youth work. In order to fully support our youth, we must be able to support the family unit as a whole.
