The Los Angeles Chapter of CBM (CBMLA) mentors youth in the Greater Los Angeles Area, conducting youth life skills workshops and hosting group mentoring sessions for young black males ages 11 to 19. CBMLA instructions and mentoring activities stress the importance of education, self mastery and personal achievement. Mentoring is conducted through the volunteer services of adult black male role models. CBMLA strives to motivate and encourage young black males to finish high school and attend college (or vocational trade schools) to improve their chances of having rewarding careers and successful family lives.
