Black Suit Initiative Membership Application
In 2016, The Sparrow's Nest, Inc. launched their new, all-male program, "The Black Suit Initiative". This FREE leadership and community engagement program, allows young men in middle and high school, the opportunity to improve academic performance, explore their career interests and participate in positive team building exercises. The successful completion of program activities, allows these young men the opportunity to earn their own full black suit at the completion of their first year. Members can remain in the program until they graduate from high school.

Meetings occur 2-3 Saturdays each month, between the hours of 9am-2pm(times will vary). Young men are selected to become members of the program through an application and interview process. We are currently accepting applications from rising 6th grade males through rising 10th grade males. (Because attendance is a key factor to remaining in the program, we cannot accept applicants who participate in recreation league sports or other extracurricular activities which meet on Saturdays) We will have 15 openings for the upcoming school year.

Application should be filled out by student.
