“Everyone that walks through the door (of The BMO Program) is a success story.”
Don Moore, Executive Director / Co-Founder of the Better Men Outreach (BMO) Program has mentored young men in Detroit for over 13 years. A Detroit native and graduate of the historic Marygrove College, Don explains that the BMO program is something he wished he had growing up. Don and cofounder, Issac Nazoma, created BMO as a result of witnessing the needs in their own community, and they made a choice to be a part of the solution rather than complain about the problem.
BMO teaches young men (and women) positive self-expression, conflict resolution, and critical thinking. Don uses a method he calls “fixed mindset into growth mindset,” teaching participants the critical skills needed to help shift a (sometimes) self-destructive mindset to one of positivity, aspiration, and growth. In addition to many other resources, BMO provides work placement for young men, legal services, and human service resources for those experiencing insecurities.
