Our Vision, Mission, and Policy


Beam-logo-from-GD-siteVision: To interrupt the generational cycles of struggle for educational attainment and socioeconomic success for Black youth and adults in Oregon.

Mission: We accomplish our multigenerational community building by offering annual summits, individual and group trainings, collaborative workshops, integrated classes and seminars focused on positive identity development, high academic standard and professionals who are trained in the Common Core Standards.

Policy: We are committed to assisting Oregon’s educational agencies in their efforts to reform policies and practices that promote disparities between ethnic groups. We are driven by the belief that a high quality education is the best way to improve the odds for every individual.
