The numbers below show the crisis that African-American boys are facing in this country particularly in the areas of education. These numbers have been reported by multiple entities, both federally and privately funded, over multiple time periods and as a result cannot be treated as just random statistics. Below are just a few highlights, but we encourage you to visit our Resources page to get a feel for the breadth of studies that have been done in the past and truly understand why we, the team behind TEAM, are so passionate about what we are doing. The good news is, the trends can be reversed, but it starts with one boy, one family and one community at a time.
