Who We Are

The Black-American Community Outreach Organization is governed by a Board of Directors that consists of individuals within the community that have an intentional and vested interest in promoting the vision and mission of the organization. This group of appointed leaders has the skills, knowledge, and abilities to represent the population that would most benefit from activities administered by the organization.

In the spirit of mentorship, we provide an opportunity for members to increase their leadership skills by creating a platform entitled the Panel of Partners. This Panel of Partners typically consists of young leaders that engage in the recruitment of other youthful members, assist in the defined engagement levels of the Community Friends, and participate in other special or specific projects.

Understanding that the Black American Community Outreach Organization practices inclusivity, the leadership wants to extend the helping hand of hope and provide an opportunity for all those that desire to engage with a platform to become one of our community friends. Community friends are those individuals who donate, attend events, and offer their volunteerism and other methods of support.
