Campaign for Black Male Achievement
The Campaign for Black Male Achievement (CBMA) is a national membership network that seeks to ensure the growth, sustainability, and impact of leaders and organizations committed to improving the life outcomes of Black men and boys. The CBMA member network currently includes more than 3,000 representing nearly 2,000 organizations across the country.
CBMA will focus on ensuring that there is a strengthened “ground game” of local leaders and organizations devoted to improving the life outcomes of Black men and boys, while working with and supporting the broader “air game” efforts like the My Brother’s Keeper initiative.
Black Male Achievement Social Innovation Accelerator
The Black Male Achievement Social Innovation Accelerator (the “Accelerator”) is a key strategy of the CBMA to showcase and spread what works in the field of black male achievement — by selecting and supporting a cohort of Black Male Achievement (BMA) Innovators.
A Black Male Achievement Innovator is a leader whose organization exemplifies the pursuit of high performance that leads to tangible results in improving the life outcomes of black men and boys and who has the passion and potential to increase his/her local and national leadership.
The Accelerator provides a unique opportunity for organizations with demonstrable outcomes to receive one-on-one consulting to articulate their goals, strengthen their communications for fundraising and sustainability, and have opportunities to be showcased to funders.
