There are 4 aspects to what we do:

Financial Empowerment

We believe that financial empowerment is financial freedom, and through financial freedom, communities can rebuild and create sustainable opportunities themselves. We provide a "real world" approach to business and financial education using hands-on business opportunities. 


We help people envision a pathway to success for themselves. Next, we guide them through potential barriers that may exist from their own perspectives. 

Community Empowerment

We are the change we wish to see. All of our business ventures are mutually beneficial to (1) the community (2) the BBD participant and to (3) BuyBlackDepot. We believe that in order to facilitate change, all activities performed under BuyBlackDepot must be to empower youth, as they affect effective change in the future.

The first step to living the life of your dreams is empowering yourself to become what you were meant to be. - Undi
