On father's day, the men of Chicago spent time with the youth. Displaying the type of love and compassion men have historically shown. Chicago youth felt great under our leadership. We kicked it in New York's Brooklyn.
Friday, June 19th over 13 residents deployed to 830 miles to NYC to promote our national anti-violence message and to recruit New York residents to join our national efforts and deploy to Chicago for up to 90 days.
From all parts of the Chicagoland area, we raised $90.00 worth of pennies to send to Ghana in Africa. This was an amazing operation given the economic crisis we are in here in America. Thank you to the hood as well as the Irish leaders that gave to us. Mushin Jallal leads a youth group in Tamale, Ghana and he truly appreciates what America does for him and the youth.

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.
