Concerned Black Men was founded in 1975 by a group of Philadelphia police officers dedicated to reducing gang violence. Through mentorship and programming, they worked to affirm young Black men, foster self-discipline, and offer support. Since then, CBM has expanded nationwide, leading to the creation of the Los Angeles chapter (CBMLA) in 2003. For the past 20 years, CBMLA has provided youth and adult services to African-American communities throughout the Los Angeles County area.
Every dollar we receive is put to work in service of our mentees. Since much of our staff are retired or volunteers, you can rest assured that each dollar you donate is funding a scholarship, college tour, or youth development program directly.
