ENRICHING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR YOUNG MEN OF COLOR

ENRICHING THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR YOUNG MEN OF COLOR

We recognize that using data to dismantle and correct racist policies, practices, and procedures requires individuals, government, and organizations to work together to achieve collective goals that will enrich the quality of life for Columbus young men of color. The BYMOC Collective serves as the Columbus, Franklin County backbone organization that works directly with young men of color and key stakeholders to design and implement policy and practice changes that enable BYMOC to thrive. The BYMOC Collective works with policymakers, funders, and programs and organizations serving young men of color.

By Us, For Us, and With Us, BE A CATALYST FOR CHANGE

Each of us has a role to play in becoming and creating the change we seek. The BYMOC Collective's specific role is to purposely engage youth of color to intentionally co-design and implement policies and practices that improve the quality of life for BYMOC and the broader community. We do this by working with young people to identify what is important to them and support them in being a catalyst for the change they seek. Together we will identify the gaps that exist across all sectors that touch on their lives. Together, we will deepen our understanding of and implement policies and practices that improve the quality of life for BYMOC and our community. Together, we will bridge the generational gap in advocacy efforts to amplify and sustain our efforts.
