Southern College Tour

Lehman YABC and East Side House Settlement took students on an overnight college tour that included stops at Hagerstown Community College, Morgan State University, Hampton University, Norfolk State University and Liberty University. The trip also featured a stop at Busch Gardens. An amazing time was had by all, and many students have shared how impactful it was for them to visit HBCUs and schools outside of the NYC area.

Aim High and Rise Up

I truly love what I do at the moment. It’s all about the people, positive energy/vibes and impact. Whether it’s in a community, in an auditorium, in a classroom, in a home, the energy that we are trying to bring to 2019 is special. Many blessings to Sherman Browne for your talk today and Martin Smallhorne for making it all happen. “All we do is win”

YABC 100 Suits

Special thanks to Kevin Livingston, CEO of 100 SUITS  for sharing his journey with us and donating over $20,000 worth of ties to our Lehman YABC program. Giorgio Armani and Hugo Boss ties all worth $195 and up were distributed to our young scholars. The result of our young scholars wearing shirts and ties has resulted in our you men being about business, looking amazing, displaying a sense of pride and feeling confident. This has eliminated physical altercations in our program in the past 10 years. Special thanks to Kevin Livingston for helping our students suit up and inspiring them to strive for greatness.
