2022 THEME

"Keeping the focus on our Young Male Scholars as some try to diminish them and their accomplishments."

Though From The Fire is a young black male-centric organization we seek NOT to exclude anyone from the education we offer. We promote inclusion as well as value diversity in, sexual orientation, self-identification, ethnicity, and disability. Our curriculum includes education, events, training, and providing resources to help advance these young men personally and professionally. We are intent on creating a collaborative and supportive environment where diversity is celebrated, and individuals are empowered.

Diversity & Inclusion

FTF is male centric, but accepts anyone based on their chosen identity.

Scholar Focus

All that we do will be geared towards our Scholars’ improvement.

Collaboration

From The Fire will engage others to improve, fund and administer its Programs.
