Our Story

Dedication and Service

The Black Joy Foundation was established as a non-profit/ 5O1C3 in April 2021. We have and will continue to create environments where Black youth can experience pure delight without fear and judgment. Our most significant impact is achieved during our annual Black Boy Joy Retreat hosted in several major cities including Oakland, California; Columbus, Ohio; and Orangeburg, South Carolina. Our four foundational pillars of financial/economic literacy, leadership, teamwork, and life skills serve as a guide to implementing enjoyable programs and activities for the youth that also promote learning and growth. .

Mission Statement

"To amplify, cultivate, and support black youth in reaching their fullest potential."

Khala Pace, Black Joy Foundation President
