Participants from BLMA's Financial Freedom Summit.

The Department of Black & Latino Male Achievement collaborated with Jason Fields, Joaquin AltoroKalan Haywood I, Kevin Newell, Marc Wade and Robert S. LaGrant to execute the Financial Freedom Summit for graduating seniors involved in BLMA programming from Bradley Tech, Riverside, South Division, and Washington high schools. Topics discussed were credit, entrepreneurship, investing, real estate development, and savings.



The Mission of the Department of Black & Latino Male Achievement will collaboratively create the systems, structures, and spaces that guarantee success for all Black and Latino boys and young men in Milwaukee Public Schools.  


BLMA Vision is that Black & Latino boys and young men will possess an affirmed sense of identity, dignity and self-confidence, and will have the necessary tools to triumphantly navigate college, career and life.
