ABOUT THE B.D.Y.O.
The B.D.Y.O. a Certified 501(c)(3) Organization. Founded in 2001 by A.D. Jenkins, upon the principals of community and youth involvement, the BDYO reaches children ages 6-18 years of age. The BDYO operates with specific programs that cater to the respective ages and needs of each participant. With a goal to not only invest in young lives, but to provide them the tools and resources necessary to become positive contributors in their communities, the BDYO emphasizes education as the fundamental building block needed to achieve successful futures.
In 2010, the BDYO developed a Math & Reading Program for children 6-12 years old. Through individual tutoring, the organization provides assistance to youth in areas that may be of special concern. Through its mentoring program, the BDYO is able to work with those individuals who may have disciplinary issues, or who just needs a positive influence in their lives.
