Business Training Center
6639 Germantown Ave

Boys to Bosses Business Training Center is a mentoring program for males of color  12 to 19 years of age to come and learn product development and business skills along with grooming tips and so much more. The Boys to Bosses program is a six month training program two days a week by a fixed schedule.

Males ages 12 to 19 will have a clear insight into product development and business ownership to help combat the high unemployment rate that this population is experiencing.

Boys to Bosses training center is a business development program founded by Product designer, and teacher Ron Wilch to teach young men of color business skills, and life skills such as personal grooming, self-respect , respect for others, and so much more.

Mentoring and nurturing boys and young men of color has become even more important to address the senseless violence taking place among young men against each other in communities of color. The Boys to Bosses training program will help to address this issue by supplying positive male role models as mentors, to give workshops, and chaperone day trips to local businesses,  corporations, and factories, for up close and personal interviews with CEOs and business owners.

Boys to Bosses training center is now on a mission for sponsorship support from national corporate sponsors to help defray the cost to single parent homes that are interested in placing their son(s) in the program.
