Impact Report: Boys and Young Men of Color
In January/February 2015, the National Voices Project (NVP) conducted the Boys and Young Men of Color (BYMOC) survey, in partnership with the National Collaborative for Health Equity (NCHE). The survey was administered by GfK, an international survey research organization that maintains KnowledgePanel, a nationally representative, web-enabled panel of adults 18 years or older across the United States.
Some key findings in the report includes:
- The majority of adults who work and volunteer with children (59%) believe the term “boys and young men of color” refers only to African Americans.
- African American, Hispanic, and White adults hared the same predominant perception: almost two-thirds believe that “boys and young men of color” refers only to African Americans.
