About The KBF
To dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline and to bring Social Emotional Intelligence (SEI)
to youth and young adults.
To utilizatilize social justice discussions, civic engagement programs and mental health awareness to engage, empower and motivate narrative change within urban communities
Our strategies support youth and young adults, typically in middle/ high school and college, who were negatively impacted by systemic oppression via the school to prison pipeline, particularly those labeled “At Risk Youth”. We aim to enhance their social emotional learning skills through critical thinking exercises, relationship building lessons, mentoring through narrative change and skill building. The KBF aims to encourage the role of leaders for systems change. Listening to the community and its needs allowed us to develop a curriculum that speaks directly to the necessities that our youth and young adults face day to day. The criminalization of poverty, race and trauma has held our poor communities in its grips far too long for us to not find a way out.
