Back To School Celebration

A Meaningful Start To The School Year

To ensure a meaningful start to the school year for all students of our community, the Annual Back To School Celebration (BTSC) has transformed from an event affecting the “whole child” to a process involving a “whole family” led strategy which hopefully will provide children (and their siblings & parents) tools and services to achieve their goals.

Formerly known as "Backpacks for Success", the 100 Black Men of Madison has provided more than 42,000 FREE backpacks filled with school supplies to area at-risk youth over the past 28 years. In 2023, the Back to School Celebration provided "vital services and exposures" to hundreds of economically disadvantaged youth and their families Saturday, 5 August from 8:00 am – 11:00 am at Madison College, Traux Campus.
