Since 2009 the Fraternity has mentored 300 Jennings Middle School students, through its lecturer series and Fraternity members have provided one on one mentoring to 40 college and middle school male students. We’ve worked with Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Missouri regarding mentorship training and screening. EBF has provided financial support to Fathers Support Center to help fathers establish better relationships with their children. Having a caring and loving adult(s) in a young person’s life is key to their healthy growth and development. Please help us continue our mentoring efforts.

The program is designed to work directly with middle school students as well as young men 18-29 years old. It meets them where they are and helps guide, counsel, and encourage them through personal or career challenges.  It helps equip them with life skills and workforce readiness… guidance they need to be successful.  The program uses a network of organizations and individuals to provide participants with information and connective services. Coaches listen, provide ideas, tap into interests, and empower individuals to make constructive choices regarding their education, careers, and personal development goals. Each Life Coach reaches 20-30 individuals in the program. With your support we can scale this program up to impact more young men. Please help us today!

Since 2017 EBF has funded 80 college scholarships, supporting students at a variety of institutions.  We established the Dr. Henry Givens Scholarship program supporting male students at Harris Stowe State University and Lincoln University. Dr. Givens was a member of the Fraternity and served as President of both Universities, during his outstanding career in higher education. Having resources to attend college or a trade/ technical school is critical in helping young people succeed. We are committed to providing educational opportunities and resources to more young men. Please help us continue our education efforts.

Providing access to quality health care and encouraging a healthy lifestyle is critical in our community. We continue to work with organizations to help disseminate information on prostate cancer, diabetes, hypertension, pancreatic cancer, and many other diseases and illnesses that impact our community.  That is why we supported organizations like Integrated Health Network and provided $100,000 for COVID-19 family assistance in 2020. We want to continue to encourage healthy lifestyles and educate the community on ways they can improve their health. Please join us in this effort!
