Empowering Youth, Countering Violence, and Creating Opportunities
At MBK617, our mission is to empower and uplift the next generation of leaders in our community. We believe in the limitless potential of our youth, and we are committed to providing them with the tools, guidance, and support they need to thrive.
We are dedicated to the personal growth and development of all our community members. We understand the unique challenges our community face, and we are here to help them overcome obstacles, achieve dreams, and become changemakers in their own right.
Through a wide range of programs and initiatives, we offer educational resources, mentorship opportunities, Workforce development, and a strong sense of belonging. We believe that by nurturing the potential of each young person, we can create a brighter future for all.
We approach youth development holistically, recognizing that it takes a village to empower a young person. Our programs focus on academic success, skill-building, and community engagement. We foster a sense of unity and belonging, where every individual feels valued and supported.
Whether you're a young person looking to unlock your potential, a mentor eager to inspire, or a supporter who believes in the power of youth, MBK617 welcomes you with open arms. Together, we can create a legacy of empowerment, resilience, and unity.

During the summer MBK617 has organized many trips to let the youth enjoy their youth. Bike rides, Beach & Pool days, RC Racing, Paintball Day, Amusement Park, Sports Day, Visits to State Parks, Rock Climbing, just to name a few. The goal of these trips is to expose youths to people, places, or things outside their current environment. These trips also help to build a bond between youth and staff.
