PBHA's David Walker Scholars Program

Purpose Statement

The David Walker Program strives to create a sense of black cultural and historical pride in Boston area boys through education and mentorship from the Harvard Black Men?s Forum. It has been our longtime belief that we have a duty to provide guidance and leadership to the young men of the Boston community in order to facilitate a positive and prosperous future for them, as well as break the negative stereotypes of the common black man in America. We look to do this by teaching and mentoring these young men on black history and life skills, such as college planning, dealing with police and other figures of authority, drugs in the community, etc. Our relationship with these boys will extend outside of the classroom and include field trips and other activities to create and strengthen bonds that we hope will last far beyond their time in the program.
