INITIATIVE Third Ward Houston Educational Enhancement Initiative
This initiative focuses on improving student and school improvements in Third Ward Houston. At this time, the four HISD public schools in Third Ward are in or near Improvement Required (IR) status, making them vulnerable to closure, take-over, or restarting. Black Wall Street Houston would join other organizations working on:
(1) The 3rd Ward Mentoring and Tutoring Initiative (Every Student Mentoring Program-ESMP);
(2) Parent and Community Engagement;
(3) Community Schools and International Baccalaureate Initiatives.
To date, the Hermann Park Rotary Club (HPRC) has developed contacts with supporters on the HISD school board and in the City of Houston's Mayor's Office to establish an ESMP Task Force, engaging representatives from the four participating schools, along with representatives from Texas Southern University, the University of Houston and Houston Community College. Black Wall Street USA might take a leadership role in establishing a community advisory board to support the schools and coordinate the array of volunteers and new professionals assigned to improve student outcomes. By working with the District, the City, the business community, and the non-profit sectors, Third Ward schools can be returned to productive institutions where all students achieve success consistent with their interest and God-given talents.

INITIATIVE Anti Bullying Initiative
#DONTbetheBULLY Campaign that has gained recognition in regards to bringing awareness to the act and the outcomes of bullying. With this #DONTbetheBully Campaign, we have demonstrated success and would like to continue. What has kept us viable during this campaign is the fact of bullying being an ongoing problem in this society that has shown its presence in schools, neighborhoods, churches, and even places of employment. This has become an epidemic around the country and has caused many children as well as adults to commit suicide. What will keep us successful is our industry relationships, associations, and also the fact of developing, managing, and promoting exceptional events that will educate the community on issues in which are affecting our youth while incorporating entertainment to grasp the attention during the presentation ofbullying and its effects. This initiative is designed to provide better opportunities for our youth.
INITIATIVE Dual Citizenship Program Initiative
Dual Citizenship Opportunities. Dual citizens have access the same set of
opportunities in two countries. For example, as a dual citizen you will be
allowed to vote in both countries. You are allowed to work in both
countries, so you can choose the country with better wages or conditions.
You will be allowed to own property and take advantage of two government
services systems. You can choose where to go to school and pay a citizen's
Cultural Education. Having dual citizenship gives you the chance to
educate others about the culture and people of two different countries.
Governments may like dual citizenship because it helps to promote a
country's image and culture abroad. If you have two passports, you may
have more access to the world. For example, a typical American citizen
cannot travel to South Africa without applying for a costly visa -- if
that American citizen also held Ghanian citizenship, she could simply
present her Ghanian passport at the time of travel and go to South Africa
without a visa.

INITIATIVE J Kola Nut Collaborative Initiative
The Kola Nut Collaborative is a timebank recently formed in southeast Chicago to weave together individuals, neighborhoods and organizations in a network of reciprocal service exchange. As a community development tool, timebanking holds tremendous collaborative promise as an incentive towards participation in prosocial activities within a community. By offering a cashless incentive which members can readily trade on the network for other useful services, we reward those participants who are already performing beneficial work in formations such as block clubs or neighborhood associations and incentivize those who may not have participated in the past to become involved. Timebanking enables individuals to decrease the financial pressure on themselves by offering them a network of neighbors who can provide services while offering that network an opportunity to be of assistance to someone else. Inside the timebank, time is traded as the currency. Our mission is to promote and sustain a robust timebanking infrastructure which supports these non-monetary transactions amongst individuals and organizations allowing a greater sum of the realized value of work to be retained and shared within local communities. Our vision is to make social infrastructure visible within our communities. Social infrastructure describes the invisible bonds and relationships which constitute a generative capital that can be accumulated and circulated through timebanking.
