Who We Are

The OK Program is a national mentoring model for African American men and boys. The program brings together Police and Pastors around the country to recruit, train and organize African American men to mentor African American boys 12-18 years old. The primary goal of the program is to help our young men develop leadership and critical thinking skills, promote academic excellence and reduce the high rates of incarceration and homicide of young African American males.

Become A Member

We will recruit train and organize one hundred thousand African American men to mentor our boys. Once a man is recruited to be one of “One Hundred Thousand Strong,” he receives training designed specifically for this national mentoring model. Then, he joins an organized team of mentors to work with an African American Police Officer to mentor young men. Read More

Participate

Since the OK Program is a National Mentoring Model for African American men and boys, African American city leaders form partnerships with police departments and school districts to implement the program in their cities. In order to expand this mentoring model throughout the country, our goal, through the “One Hundred Thousand Strong National African American Male Mentor Initiative”, is to enlist 100,000 African American men to mentor our boys.
