The discussions and presentations covered a many topics including: relationships with parents, women, authority, being a young black man in America, how to erase criminal records, sources for jobs and educational opportunities and funding, how to be successful in life, sharing common struggles, developing healthy families, drugs and alcohol.
Leadership developed a database of those attending in addition to a profile form and questionnaire covering education, job training, computer competency, goals, legal challenges, and ethical development. This information would allow Better Men Outreach to have accurate statistics on their members, including needs assessments, and measuring proven organizational impact. Leadership also required that young men participate in service projects in the community. Over the next several years BMO would lead countless community service projects and serve over 4,000 young adult men in the Greater Detroit Area.
