There is no force like success, and that is why the individual makes all effort to surround himself throughout life with the evidence of it; as of the individual, so should it be of the nation.”

Program Over View
The unfortunate reality experienced by many African-American communities in New York City is generational mis-education. The New York City Board of Education has demonstrated an inability to educate mass amount of Blacks with the skills that will make them successful in America. The XyayX Institute was created to provide educational services to Black and Latino people. We are in the process of obtaining 501c3 non-profit status and we have already begun tremendous works within Brownville and East New York communities through our educational programs. The XyayX Institute is one of the very few independent Non-for-profit organizations created by Black men in NYC solely to provide educational services and programs to develop their communities.
XyayX aspires to significantly address the alarming educational disparities within African-American community. Our Mission is to provide education services to black people. This mission was spawned to address the alarming educational disparities found within Blacks communities in comparison to others. Steven Brown of the Daily News has been quoted saying: “Education Department officials have struggled for years to close the persistent achievement gap faced by black and Hispanic kids in the city’s public schools.” This unfortunate failure over time has continued to add to the ever-growing multitude of Brooklyn residents who lack a high school diploma. In 2014, the Brooklyn City Comptroller was quoted stating: “Education leads to improved employment opportunities, but more than one-fifth of Brooklyn residents lack a high school diploma. The unemployment rate for Brooklyn residents without a high school diploma (14.2 percent) was more than twice that for those with at least some college education (6.3 percent).” These numbers are particularly prominent in the African-American neighborhood.
To directly combat this challenge plaguing the African community we are requesting your assistance with expanding our institute’s capabilities in Brownsville and East New York Brooklyn communities. The XyayX Institute will commit to using your contributions to address these challenges through providing consistent educational programs, such as our “The XyayX K-12 enrichment program” which provides African centered core-curriculum enrichment for children between the ages of 5 and 17 year old and our Project Tap program that provides free preparatory classes for the T.A.S.C. high school equivalency exams.
I’m inviting you to support The XyayX institutes efforts in providing dire educational services to black neighborhoods. We hope to raise $3500 via our first Go fund me campaign online with in the next two months and $20,000 over the next year. In addition we are seeking in-kind donation of Computers, Microscopes, telescope, will serve, as a much need tools to participants.
Your consideration is very much appreciated. Thank you for helping us with the process redeveloping and enhancing our community by supporting our educational programs. Should you have any questions, please feel free to call me directly at 718-450-3434 or visit our Web site at
