The Building Better Men Program (B2M) is a male mentoring/leadership program for males ages 8-18. The B2M program was started in 1991 by Odis Bellinger and was founded on the principle that young men can be successful despite challenges associated with absent/uninvolved fathers.
We equip young males with the social, academic, and problem-solving skills to contribute to their communities and the world.
Building Better Men succeeds because of the generosity of people like you. Please consider giving to B2M to help us reach our community and raise up young men.
85% of the young men serviced in the Building Better Program are from the 48205, 48214, 48213 area of Detroit MI. The 48205 area code is considered the most impoverished area in the city of Detroit. Our program participants are 90% African American, 5% Caucasian, and 5% Native American/Hispanic.
