The Story.

Innovator(s)

The Blakk Co. is a membership based social club for men and women of color. The product and services they bring are passes for membership for different events, apparel, and bathroom products like candles and facial oil. They bring value to the community by bringing a safe social space and community for men and women of color who don't have other spaces to be themselves.

Problem

The problem were solving is how can we add youth to The Blakk Co.

Solution

The solution is the Juniors Program which is a program that lasts 2 days for four weeks for ages 12-18. It answers the wants and needs of the users because it gives information about college, teamwork skills, and addresses mental health issues.

Target Market

The main people affected by this problem are youth 12-18.

Societal Impact

The Juniors program would bring value to youth of color by providing a space where they belong. The Juniors program would bring value in the future for youth using the skills they learned to improve their lives and their communities.

Next Steps

The next steps would be to start the program then, in November, start plans to expand the program.

Reflection

The work has impacted us because it brought us a sense of value to the community and improved our communication and teamwork skills.
