Who are millennials?

Millennials are defined as individuals born between 1982- 1994. They are the generation of limitless possibilities! The most liberal, independent, free-spirited and altruistic generation by far, there’s still lots to uncover about who this generation really is- and who they will become.

Why black millennials?

Because they rock! African American or black millennials involved in community work are equipped with the hearts and desires to make a difference. Often times the networks and resources to be entirely effective are not made readily available to them. Consequently, many organizations struggle with the ways and means to communicate to this diverse demographic. We connect these dots.
