National Block Club University is a daily process structured to create, nurture, and sustain strong safe neigbhorhoods.
NBCU tracks, monitors, and counters acts of violence throughout 167 of America's most dangerous neigborhoods.
NBCU was officially incorporated in summer of 2003 as a not for profit organization designed to teach and develop residents to combat crime and disorder. Founder Syron M. Smith of Chicago, Illinois created NBCU to coincide with the for profit organization Block Club Union; which focused on creating small resident owned convenience stores. The small stores would help stop the exploitation of low income residents from business owners that can careless about the welfare and development of the population they serve. Block Club Union Incorporated fit directly into NBCU's structure because it helped to provide donation dollars from simply buying store products from stores that are committed to "giving back" to the local neighborhood. Block Club Union Incorporated was founded by Syron M. Smith in 2001. Prior to 2001, Syron had created the not for profit called Chicago Block Club Union, this organization was first started in the fall of 1998 and in 2000 the name was changed to Block Club Union Charities. BCUC was granted 501 c 3 status (advance ruling) by the Internal Revenue Service to fulfill it's mission of taking youth on travel trips to help broaden their view and perspectives.
