Enriching the Lives of African -
American/Black Boys

Igniting creativity & innovation


Connect to Greatness, Inc. (C2G) is a 501c3 organization formed specifically to expose alternative and promising programming options to African-American/Black boys to discover their greatness and set new expectations for themselves and their future. Our goal is to promote and nurture a shift in their thinking about themselves, their behaviors, attitudes and relationships. The organization focuses on 6th grade boys in South Palm Beach County. We are committed to the "inside out work" of moving our boys from trailblazers to change makers. Watch here as AJ+ brings the stories that are shaping our world in Changing The Game For Young Black Males In America.


  • PARENTS are you looking for alternative opportunities to empower your African-American/Black Boys to reach their potential of greatness? Could your son benefit from exposure to other boys and African-American/Black Men who "coach" them to implement life skills such as good decision making and speaking with confidence? If so, join Connect to Greatness' Boys to Men Academy. This journey begins with a 15-week self-discovery program and continues as a gateway to high school.
