Empowering Youth Through Education, Entrepreneurship & Entertainment

YP 3 Pillars

Boss Builders focus on the Non-Athlete grades 6th thru 12th for the purpose of making them small business owners, youth marketers and adolescent sales promoters. The program entails the development of youth through training and hands on experience. Youth Promoter knows it is important to target this demographic because too often children receive less attention in society when they don't participate in sports. A simple example is to go into the home or room of a child that participates in sports and you will see trophies or certificates of accomplishments but nothing representing the child with no athletic ambition.

Building Athletes for Life After Sports (BALAS) is the program that will be utilized to train athletes at an early age so they don’t become fools with money. Too often individuals chase the professional ranks of sports to only miss or make it but self-destruct. BALAS mission is to add balance at an early age by using business and money as a motivating factor.

"BALAS" focuses on youth athletes owning and operating small businesses in order to:

  • provide them with a real world foundation and give them a reality check to realize that they may not make it into the professional ranks in their prospective sport, so they need to have something to fall back on  
  • teach them how to manage their finances and personal affairs
  • Assist them in handling adversities on and off the court, field, and diamond.
  • add depth, character, and substance to their lives
  • teach them positive values and to engage in positive activities

    Loyalty-Having your brother’s back through good and bad. “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” Martin Luther King Jr.

    Commitment – a promise to avoid any action that will cause a person to lose his life or take a life. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King Jr.

    Respect - to pay proper attention to, and not violate, the rights of others. “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” Martin Luther King Jr.

    Surrender - submit to authority to preserve your rights. “Let no man pull you so low as to hate him.” Martin Luther King Jr.

    WGYB was founded by Bruce Carter, a youth activist, who has proven his love for children on a consistent basis. Mr. Carter has faced off with School Districts, State Agencies and even parents when it comes to children. He says: “for too long the only time our youth become a primary focus is at the time of death”. He has led crusades to end childhood hunger, bullying and abuse of youth by and amongst youth. As of 2014, Mr. Carter has traveled the country serving over a million meals to youth nationally, providing scholarships and spoken to more than 500,000 youth in schools, youth organizations, and colleges.
