This summer, we continue to mine the qualitative, quantitative, and Facebook data we collected during the 2017-2018 academic year from the 350+ young Black men from Michigan State University and Ohio State University.
Fortunately, 2017 proved to be a noteworthy year for the YBMen Project as we had several "firsts" to celebrate, including hiring a new Project Coordinator, Manny Richardson.
In addition to analyzing the data from EMU, we are also preparing to launch another iteration of the YBMen Project at Michigan State University and Ohio State University this fall.
The innovation behind the YBMen Project is that we deliver social support using popular culture references (e.g., YouTube videos, popular songs, etc.) through our 5- to 8-week long curriculum.
