"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."

Frederick Douglas


Mr. Martin says that one of the most important positive aspects of his development into the man he became was BOTSO (Brothers Organized to Save Others).

He says, “The men in BOTSO were like a team of fathers to me and the other boys in the program. They took us on field trips and made sure that we understood the logistics of growing up as a Black man in America and that we knew how important it was to go to school and get a good education. I want to do that for my generation and the next generation of Black men.”

Commander (SW) Kenyatta Martin, Mentee
