Who we are
Powerful Beyond Measure (PBM) is a 501c3 non-profit that implements efforts towards youth and community development; focusing on creative, academic, professional, civic, social and personal growth by strategically integrating the arts, entertainment, sports and media industries into programming. PBM is a volunteer run. It is primarily funded by donations and corporate sponsorships.
Founded in 2006, the organization began with its charter program, C.A.P.E. League – a multi-dimensional youth enrichment program. In 2007, we launched Exploring Possibilities, a unique career day for teens and young adults to discover non-traditional professions. Since 2008, we have produced PBM’s Weekly Source Email – an on-line newsletter distributed to DC area residents, community groups and nonprofits. It lists public events, job openings, services, scholarships and programs. In 2018, PBM launched the Future Fund to grant small, monetary gifts to help support the dreams and goals of our young people.
