The 1st National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo Presents FAME: Fashion, Art, Music & Education

Good day and great blessings.  I hope you will consider supporting The 1st National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo Presents FAME: Fashion, Art, Music & Education and our initiatives to build better children's communities by promoting it among your circles of influence.


Please help me prove that Black America has all the resources required to improve the quality of life and learning for our young generation.  If you’d like to actively be a part of the progress, please let me know and I’ll forward you the NBTEE survey that outlines several ways you can support or be a part of our efforts.


On behalf of our youth who need us more than ever before, my gratitude is yours.

The National Black TEEN Empowerment Expo (NBTEE) Presents FAME: Fashion, Art, Music & Education is a progressive community development and revitalization strategy that brings together caring 21st century leaders, private and public sectors, youth and community stakeholders and resources, media, technology and youth to provide a global forum collaborating on better ways to reach and teach today’s TEENS.


The focus of the NBTEE is far greater than a weekend event. Before, during and after the NBTEE, with support from their local and global communities, TEENS will be consistently encouraged and engaged in productive initiatives every day to ensure more positive outcomes for life.  Each expo is strategically planned to be held prior to the start of school year so that we inspire participating TEENS to achieve throughout the academic season and provide the necessary resources to motivate them in ensuring this goal.


The NBTEE Collaborative is supported by more than 375 groups throughout the United States and regional directors in five U.S. markets: northeast; southeast; northwest, southwest and midwest. Our local planning committee has 80 years of combined expertise working with community and children in varying capacities.


The NBTEE’s work constantly focuses on one key question:  “How do we inspire more of today’s Black TEENS to believe and succeed?”


In seeking answers to this critical question, based on individual, family and community TEEN risk factors, and clearly understanding that our TEENS have a unique set of challenges and needs, the planning team has developed highly relevant and interactive programming designed to effectively engage NBTEE TEENS:


·      Short films that realistically portray many of the challenges TEENS confront on a daily basis and how the choices they make can help overcome them.  A discussion will follow each film.

·      Interactive workshops designed to educate and elevate the minds, bodies and souls of today’s TEENS.

·      TEEN IDOL and FAME* shows that captivate and inspire TEEN performers and audiences of their peers.

·      Peer empowerment initiatives such as TEEN workshop facilitators, vendors and exhibitors.

·      One-on-one discussions to identify each TEEN’s interests, and target learning experiences that encourage sustained personal and professional development.

·      Ongoing initiatives such as teen entrepreneurial and media programs, TEEN book teams, and school- and / or community-based FAME projects.

The NBTEE will implement measures to track the ongoing successes of participating TEENs to validate the value of our efforts in consistently achieving positive results for our TEENS.


*If you are (or know of) a TEEN or TEEN group interested in being FAME and TEEN IDOL performers, please call us toll free at 888.687.7248.
