4 Black Youth Scholarship. We are a group of African-American professionals and students who are on a mission to leverage new technologies to educate and provide opportunities to those who need it most. Since there are so many things against black youth, we are For Black Youth because we feel that the African-American community needs targeted solutions to combat our unacceptably low educational, income and employment statistics. However, this site wholeheartedly welcomes individuals of all ethnicities who would like to contribute to or who can benefit from our offerings. Come join us. We will make a change. visit: http://4blackyouth.com/scholarships.aspx
