Through our partnerships with local lending institutions and financial consultants, we are providing innovative programming for Black men and Black youth in Dane County. We have two Financial Literacy programs to help our Black men, young and matured, to understand generational wealth and add them to the conversations that they are so often left out of.
With so many of our Black men being recycled through the criminal justice system here in Dane County, and our men that are removed from access to opportunities, we have developed training and programs to enrich the lives of our Black men. We are able to do this through our partnerships with other local Black-led organizations.
Our goal is to expand economic opportunities to the Black men in Dane County. We have created programs that provide them with the soft skills necessary for success and prepare them for work readiness, career development, and entrepreneurship.

Black Men Coalition of Dane County has partnered with a number of local professional, social, and faith-based organizations to successfully engage Black men and Black male youth in long-term, professionally supported, outcomes-focused mentoring.
Having a meaningful character and understanding who you are as a young Black man are essential pillars of effective social, emotional, and academic learning. Therefore, our comprehensive youth development programs effectively combine social and emotional learning with academics.
