What We Do
The Be More Foundation’s mission is to empower the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities by removing barriers to impactful institutional resources that advance equity and encourage social-emotional wellbeing. Our primary focus is to maintain safe spaces where Black, Brown, & LGBTQ+ youth are centered and celebrated, as they examine social systems, learn life skills, and heal from trauma. Our vision is a community in which BIPOC and LBGTQ+ people have the support and resources they need to thrive. We design real-world applicable, creative, and social-emotional educational programming that provides expressive outlets for our Be More family. Our events inspire, unite, and motivate our community members to utilize their creative power for positive change through experiential learning.
