Powerful Beyond Measure

Powerful Beyond Measure (PBM) is a 501c3 non-profit that implements efforts towards youth and community development; focusing on academic, professional, creative, personal, civic and social growth by strategically integrating the arts, entertainment, sports and media industries into programming. Our vision is to utilize these influential fields to reach the urban communities of our targeted youth, via creative and multi-dimensional services that will help positively shape young people and empower the adults around them to become active leaders and contributors. We aim towards the following:

o To impact urban youth by exposing them to enriching and positive experiences, opportunities, and adults – leading them towards a greater chance for a productive adult life and away from negative endeavors

o To create alliances with other non-profits to support them and develop a collective effort to assist and empower those around us as well as support like-minded organizations with resources and services.

o To help lower income families experience the same rights as those of greater income i.e. education, job training & access, programs and food/clothing – through volunteerism and information

PBM utilizes the arts, entertainment and sports as tools to motivate. This approach was developed upon the realization that these fields are powerful by way of their appeal and influence on our target population. By harnessing that power to make programs more appealing, we can continue to implement the important values and societal offerings of more conventional non-profits.

PBM is volunteer run. It is primarily funded by donations and corporate sponsorships. Founded in 2006, the organization began with its charter program, C.A.P.E. League (see below) – a multi-dimensional youth program. In 2007, we launched Exploring Possibilities, a unique career day for young adults to discover non-traditional professions. Since 2008, we have produced PBM’s Weekly Source Email – an on-line newsletter distributed to DC area residents, community groups and non-profits. It lists public events, job openings, services, scholarships and programs. PBM also offers the EO List – a weekly listing of jobs across the nation in the media, marketing, publishing and sports. In 2013, we will launch Changing Lanes, the sister program to Exploring Possibilities – which will engage adults in the community with an interactive experience to expose them to new career options.

Powerful Beyond Measure believes we can help each other realize our potential for greatness, inspire the pursuit of success, and make powerful strides by working together for altruistic purposes.
