PBMA has been an excellent influence in the lives of many scholars in the 3rd Ward area of Houston, TX. Dr. Rob and his team provide character education lessons that will develop our scholars into leaders who will transform the neighborhood where they reside. I applaud all the PBMA programs such as Giggles and Girls and the GENTS. These programs expose inner city youth to colleges, camps, and volunteer opportunities. I highly recommend PBMA to anyone who is looking for a mentoring program for their son or daughter that will treat you like family.

PBMA is an one of a kind Organization, changing lives for girls and boys. My daughter is 9yrs old and she loves it. She reminds me about events and meetings when I forget. She has a heart for helping others, the community involvement is one of her favorite things to do. PBMA is strongly based on teaching LEADERSHIP to the kids and a host of other things. My daughter has taken what she's learned about Leadership and literally ran with it, at school and in everyday life. I can thank PBMA for helping me build the confidence she has. She recently won Vice President on the Student Council Committee at school, she told me "I was born a leader!".

This past summer was one to remember. My daughter finally was older enough for Stoney Creek camp for a week, she had been anxiously waiting on her time. It was everything she thought and more. I didn't think I would be able to handle her being gone for a week but every day when I spoke with her, she barley wanted to talk to me lol. The summer vision board was also a HIT! A weekend get away in Conroe , with lots of fun, food, surprises and bonding moments.

This organization is more than what I typed here. Check them out on Facebook and Instagram, you'll see!!!!

Dr. & Mrs. Rob are exceptinal and the mentors that help them are awesome. From mentoring, to coaching, playing at parent role when needed, loving on the kids, letting them know when they're wrong, teaching them how to be successful in life in every aspect. I could go on & on... the college tours, guest speakers, checking grades etc. If your looking for a program to help mold your child to be the best leader they can be or your child may need a positive role model, a new crowd with positive kids etc. PBMA raise leaders, high school and college graduates who come back and give back. They have so much more offer than what I wrote. Sign your kid or kids up Today! What are you waiting on? Your kid will blossom!

Positive Black Males Association of Houston is a really great program for the youth of the community. There are so many mentoring programs around the City of Houston but none are like this one in particular. Dr. Rob and his team take their individual time with each and every child that participates. His is a father, brother, uncle, counselor or whatever he needs to be in a child life in order to succeed and be very successful in life. The opportunities that these kids will experience is once in a life time. They learn hard work and dedication, life lessons, and they volunteer and give back to the community.

Over 8 years of serving and meeting the needs of greater Houston. PMBA continues to be an organization making transformational impact in lives of families. I know this first hand. I started out as a partner, and later became informal client via my daughter, that was being bullied in Middle school. I did not know who I could turn to and I thought of ny many years of supporting PBMA. I called them for help and without hesitation, the founders helped my family develop an action plan. I remain committed to PBMA vision & mission, wholeheartedly.

This program is extremely life changing! I've been apart of this organization since middle school and I am now attending Lousiana State University as a freshman. I owe a lot of my achievements to the encouragement of PbmA/ Logp. Positive Black Male Association/ Ladies of great purpose is much more than just a mentor program, but a family as well!

I have been with this organization for a few years. I love this program and everything that they do. This program has made a great difference in my child's life. To the old member that wrote the negative comment about finances. Why would you expect them to open up books to a general member. That is what the IRS for. You probably went to far were you a member or a board member.

The Positive Black Males of Houston organization has been a blessing to my son and many other youth in the Houston area. It is uncommon to find everyday heroes, but Dr. Rob is definitely a hero in our community. Through the Positive Black Males of Houston, my son is learning to bond with other youth and developing leadership, volunteer and other critical skills that he will need to be successful by working with the mentors in the program. Being in this program has also sparked a strong interest in my son to attend college. There is great value in The Positive Black Males of Houston and the benefits it offers our children. - Deborah Barnett, parent

PBMA is an awesome program, I joined this program when my oldest was in tenth grade, since that time I have had 2 other kids to come through this program. Mr. Rob is an amazing role model he goes over and beyond the role of a mentor. Attending the kids school activities, home visits/counseling if needed. I don't know what would have happened today my son had it not been for his guidance and leadership. The program offers community service, leadership training classes, college tours , prayer help with school clothes and Christmas gifts. I love this program.

Positive Black Males Association of Houston is an amazing organization. It is a Leadership Program. They go over and beyond in what they do for the youth of the organization. In addition to the Leadership Meetings twice a month they provide the opportunities to attend college tours, participate in community service, go to camps, go to leadership conferences with other organizations and colleges along with many other opportunities. We have amazing sponsors and are always looking for more. My son is in the organization as well as two of my daughters in the sister chapter Ladies of Great Purpose. This organization became a part of our lives at a very crucial time and have been a tremendous blessing over the past 4 years we have been in membership. I am also a mentor that aids in teaching leadership to the young ladies in Ladies of Great Purpose. This has holistically been rewarding for my family and I am very happy with the outcome I have received over the years.

This is a great organization but needs more donors and support to offset the many fees parents are asked for over and over. I would like to hear more from the youth it supports.

The PositiveblackMaleolfHouston is a true blessing.The Leadership of the program is outstanding in the positive development of young men and women. Under the leadership of DR. Rob and Mrs Rob our youth are held to a higher standards. Education Is stressed and held to a higher level of education in the positive development of young people in the program. The Youth are required to give back to the community though community service. Community service builds character and integrity in the positive development of our youth. Feeding and sleeping with the homeless are just some of the program requirements along with helping to rebuild the community. College tours and hunting and fishing other mentor programs and just a few of the program outstanding programs. I can go on and on about the PositiveblackMaleolfHouston. First and foremost God is the most important thing in the program. In closing Dr Rob and Mrs Rob are a God sent to me and our PositiveblackMaleolfHouston family.

I have been affiliated with the Positive Black Male Association for 6 years. My grandson became a member of the PBMA in 2010, when he was in the 3rd grade. He is now 17 years old and a senior in high school. This organization has helped him develop his leadership skills that he will used through his life time. He has learned the true meaning of helping the less fortunate through volunteering opportunities provided by PBMA. For young males , this is a great organization to belong to.

My husband and I have enjoyed the time our son has been a part of the PBMA. This program is not only for at risk children. It provides a wide array of experiences such as volunteering, travel, networking and just plain ole socializing away from the video games. PBMA considers themselves a part of your village and as such they are there for you as well as your children. Some times Dr. Rob or Mrs. Rob will just call to ask about you, the parent. My son was a well behaved two parented honor roll student when he joined but we wanted him to be well rounded and exposed to many people and experiences and Dr. Rob's program affords him that. I am NOT a parent who needs PBMA in my life. I AM A PARENT WHO WANTS THEM IN MY LIFE! Choose PBMA for your child and you'll see what I'm talking about. May God bless your program, Dr. Rob.
