Become a partner and help build a bridge for 1st generation business leaders. Be inspired and network with business and community leaders that strive to make a difference in the urban American landscape.

Banyan Community recognizes that in order for people in poverty to thrive and succeed, whole families AND the larger community must be connected. Banyan creates educational pathways for youth to develop leadership skills, engage in positive and meaningful relationships with peers and adults, and broaden their horizons. Likened to a “LinkedIn” social capital network that dissipates the ghetto like situation of poverty in neighborhoods.

We are excited to welcome Dr. Reatha Clark King as our keynote speaker. Dr. King’s commitment to and understanding of community, support of urban youth, and education as opportunity have us very excited to welcome her to Banyan!
