BMORE Initiative

B.MORE—Black Men & Youth Overcoming Barriers & Realizing Employment—is an initiative dedicated to improving the employment outcomes and economic health of low-income black men across America. B.MORE uses three strategies: building coalitions of practitioners who run programs that serve low-income black men; using knowledge gathered from coalitions to create resources that help improve programs and services; and influencing policy reform through evidence-based recommendations.

B.MORE Community of Practice

The initial phases of the BMORE project were informed by the B.MORE Community of Practice. The Community of Practice was composed of leaders from across the country in the fields of workforce development, responsible fatherhood, child support, reentry, and healthy marriage and relationships.
