"MBK has introduced me to a world of opportunities that I never knew existed. I started out as a students in MBK now I am an instructor on staff. It means a lot for me to be able to help other young men just like MBK has helped me."

"At first I had no direction for my life and was just wandering aimlessly. Then my MBK instructors taught me about my history and about myself. Now I am confident that I can be successful. MBK even helped me start my own business."
Christian Poullard
"There should be an MBK program in every city and every school in America. The things we learned in MBK were never taught in school, but there are things that we really needed to know. I can't imagine what I would do without this knowledge.
