Black History USA Youth Scholarship Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that was founded in 2015 by Glenn Singleton, publisher of Black History USA, an annual Black History calendar. Mr. Singleton's vision when creating the foundation was to further develop and cultivate relationships between the youth of Greenville and the Scholarship foundation. Through this relationship, the Future Leaders Conference was formed. The conference allows the opportunity for the youth of the Upstate to be exposed to Community Leaders and Role Models who have made historically significant contributions. Along with the conference each year, the foundation also recognizes a Leader for his/her efforts in the Greater Greenville Region with the Black History Community Award.
One of the goals for the Foundation is continued growth through contributions and community involvement. As the Community continues to thrive and grow, the hope is that our youth continue to be involved with activities and Leaders who are a part of the changes in their area. The Future Leaders Conference will continue to provide a blueprint for our youth to use as a guide to be involved within their communities and the various Leaders, to start making a difference early in their lives. It is with the support of the contributions, leaders, and this program, that we are excited to watch the Foundation grow.
