At its heart, BME group coaching is all about helping clients take action, make decisions, and engage in self-discovery within a group setting. The coaches encourage exploratory learning through listening, asking questions, designing action plans, and providing accountability.
The Black Male Elevation (BME) coaching program was created so that black men and boys can discuss emotional, mental, spiritual, relationship, physical health, and financial challenges in a space where vulnerability is welcomed, encouraged, and praised.

The program emphasizes the importance of learning self-control, accountability, and empowerment. Providing black males with this training enables them to coach others, communicate more effectively, and achieve success in every endeavor in life.
