Black Man Can Institute teaches skills to succeed
A program designed to help young black men learn the skills necessary to succeed in the real world has made a stop in the Bronx.
The Black Man Can Institute is a traveling workshop designed to provide comfort, support and knowledge for boys of color.
The institute's mentors range from accomplished authors, to scientists and college professors.
During the lessons the kids learn everything from how to tie a tie to how to carry themselves in a job interview.
Brandon Frame, the founder of Black Man Can, says that young men in the Bronx need more guidance and positive role models so they can better themselves and maximize their fullest potential.
"Sometimes I think the streets love our boys more than society does. So by creating these programs and pulling together the right resources we show them that we love them more than the streets do," he said.
