HIGH SCHOOL APPLICATION
Let Us Make Man -The Gathering to Reclaim Black Manhood is committed to the development of America's youth. Organized in 2006 by Derrick Boazman and a committed cadre of community leaders, the conference has held several events in the metro Atlanta area in order to raise the consciousness of young Black males. This year, we will award a deserving student this scholarship in honor of the life of Muhammad Rahim Jihad, the late son of Let Us Make Man organizer, A. B. Jihad. Muhammad's untimely transition was at the age of 17. He tragically left this world a few short years ago and his father wishes to honor his memory by aiding in the education of a young man that could be at a crossroads in life. It is brother A. B. Jihad's wish to give a small push to a young male who may be in need of a helping hand. We understand that this memorial fund of a minimum of $1,000 could help prevent a young man from making a wrong turn in life. Our mission and focus is to help develop young Black males into models of strong manhood. In addition to engaging in mentoring programs, we also understand the importance of assisting talented young Black males in pursuit of higher education. The application process is open to African American males who are High School Seniors and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better.
Brother A. B. Jihad and Sister Sakinah Jihad would like to remember their son in life by living out your dreams through education.
Applicant must reside in Georgia.
