WHAT WE DO
The Silverback Society is a nonprofit organization that supports, trains and coordinates over 150 men who volunteer and are committed to making a positive impact on more than 600 boys and young men, currently in 20 schools and growing, in the New Orleans and Gulf Coast area.
We do this by teaching respect, integrity, leadership and love, which results in reduction of disciplinary actions, higher academic achievement, and more productive young men.
Promoting responsible manhood by academic achievement since 2007
