2022-2023 Black Suit Initiative Membership Application

*** WE CURRENTLY HAVE NO OPENINGS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.  Rising 9th and 10th grade students are welcome to apply, but will be put on a waitlist and contacted by December 2022 if there are any openings.

 We are currently accepting rising 6th-8th grade students only.

The Black Suit Initiative is a FREE leadership and community engagement program for middle and high school young men.  This program allows students the opportunity to improve academic performance, explore their career interests, and participate in positive team building exercises.  After the successful completion of the first year, young men earn a full black suit. The suit is replaced as the student grows.  Members are allowed to remain in the organization until they graduate from high school. For this reason, we have limited spaces each year.

The Black Suit Initiative meetings occur 2-3 Saturdays a month, 11-months a year. Most meetings occur between the hours of 9:00AM-2:00PM. Times will vary based upon the activity.  Excellent attendance and active participation are necessary to remain in the program.

This application MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE STUDENT and submitted by no later than Friday, July 8, 2022, by 11:59PM.   If you have any questions, please contact Evainna Ross at evainnaross@gmail.com or 336-549-0146.
