Ephraim Foster
Finance Manager

They say it does not take long for people to notice if you are destined for greatness, even if you are not carrying-out your purpose at the time of introduction. There remains an “air” about those who have an innate desire to help people reach their destiny; often times at the sacrifice on one’s own. The Bible says David was just a ruddy red-haired boy tending to his father’s sheep when anointed to be the next King. Had David listened to his nay-sayers, Goliath would still be standing, and many people would have never reached their destiny. But because of David’s heart, commitment to the cause, and willingness to sacrifice, the masses witnessed their “biggest” enemy and impediment removed, clearing the way for success! Ephraim has accepted the challenge to Entertain, Educate, and Empower the inner-city youth, removing their Goliaths that they may reach their promised land!

Ephraim has been a part of FP from its inception, functioning in various roles as needed – all to increase the success of fulfilling the FP vision. He is most noted contributions are his uncanny ability to organize strategic plans inclusive of budgets and financial forecasting for FP and its many programs. His passion for the community allows him to not only comprehend the FP Vision, but drives him to make that dream a reality!

Jimmie White
Education Director

26-year old Jimmie White is a community advocate and business owner of Newark’s I.M.P.A.C.T (Initial Major Progressive Articles Creating Tranquility) LLC, whose mission is to showcase, spread and create positive and progressive news to better Newark, New Jersey and other communities through programs, events, and job creation.  He is a philanthropist, website designer, community and event organizer, and just a plain muse for community filled with the love and will to see the best out of the community.

Jimmie White was born a St. Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey on September 11, 1988 as the eldest of four. He is a graduate of Miller St. Academy elementary and Malcolm X Shabazz High School (Newark, New Jersey) where he graduated top 10 percent in his class. He enrolled into Essex County College where he had a free-ride through school as a business management major, but he soon dropped yearning for another purpose; community service. As a youth he particularly remembers the first day after school during his sophomore year; Jimmie was jumped by members of the BLOOD gang. He knew something had to be done and from this experience being forever supplanted in his mind, the answer for solving the many issues of violence and poverty lied somewhere.

During the summer of 2008, at age of 19 Jimmie signed-up to become a member of People’s Organization for Progress (POP) – and organization founded by Lawrence Hamm based in Newark, New Jersey. The organization’s goal is eliminate social, racial, and economic injustice. It is under the tutelage of this organization where Jimmie learned about African American history, community organizing, civic education, and where poverty stems from. He regularly attends Newark City Council meetings and speaks about the concerns of citizens and local residents from many neighborhoods. Jimmie White also participates in demonstrations with various organizations throughout New Jersey. One of his greatest joys in 2012 was assisting New Jersey’s working families to help raise the state’s minimum wage. Also in 2012, Jimmie White was elected Chairman of the Newark Chapter of People’s Organization for Progress.

Though he was not completely satisfied, he volunteered with another local community organization – the International Youth Organization (IYO). As an elected Chairman of the Alumni and Friends Association of IYO, Jimmie’s duty was to help bring back alumni and increase contributions to aide in the growth of IYO’s youth programs. Established in 1970, the International Youth Organization is an 501c3 organization whose mission is to empower disenfranchised youth and their families to take responsibility for themselves and their community through programs and services that promote positive social and civic values; to create opportunities for self-improvement through academic instruction, employability training, community service, and to implement intervention strategies to foster family stabilization and neighborhood preservation. According to IYO Bylaws, Jimmie’s chairmanship extends an automatic seat on their Board of Trustees. Under the instruction of Mrs. Carolyn Wallace, he learned how to become an effective Board Trustee as well as assisting in governance to aide our local youth of Newark, New Jersey to become educated and employed.

In 2013, Jimmie White made the decision to move on from IYO to continue his work with People’s Organization for Progress and open his own business known as Newark’s I.M.P.A.C.T to provide employment. Jimmie has been employed by UPS (United Parcel Service) for the past eight years as ramp agent at Newark International Airport and as a cashier for the Home Depot for two years. His next move is to purchase a home and develop Newark’s I.M.P.A.C.T program to become the leading media company that best represents Newarkers to the world. Jimmie will also be returning back to school in September 2015 to complete his Associate degree at Essex County College in Business Management. Jimmie currently serves as a member of People’s Organization for Progress and is also on the executive team of FP YouthOutCry Foundation.

Renae is a graduate of Weequahic High School – class of 1975.

While attending Essex County College as a Liberal Arts – Communications major, several student protests developed to urge the hiring of more African American faculty and offer more African American studies. Not only did this effort lead Renae toward a commitment to help students achieve their educational goals and commit to the importance of education, more importantly, it became a realization that with proper leadership and guidance, student voices can be heard.

She began her professional journey as a Student Assistant under Mayor Kenneth Gibson’s administration. Her background covers a spectrum of executive administrative positions particularly in higher education where she worked at Morehouse College (Office of Development – Government and Corporate Relations); Clark Atlanta University (School of Business – Finance Department) and several temporary positions at Spelman College. Renae was a Project Coordinator with the Southern Regional Education Board – High Schools That Work – Urban Initiative in Atlanta, GA for six years.

As a community advocate to end street violence, unwarranted homicide amongst and against our youth, and dedicated efforts through local involvement and social media communication, it not unusual to find Renae participating in marches, rallies and prayer vigils throughout Newark’s communities where death and destruction has left our youth and families in an unfortunate deplorable condition.

Moreover, Ms. Brooks is a firm believer that the FP YouthOutCry Foundation and The H.U.B.B. Community Empowerment Center has a committed responsibility to uphold Newark’s historic foundation; and plays an integral role to Entertain, Educate and Empower youthful minds about how enriched our city is, in spite of the current shortcomings.

Our children and the community deserve and must have a better life.

Kasim Samad
Rhymes4Reasons Lead Instructor/Executive Team M.E.N.T.O.R.

Kasim Samad is one of the original members of Newark’s Flip City Tumblers, a non-profit formed in the early ‘70’s. The Newark-based group achieved position as “the winningest team in the history of tumbling.” Kasim was a strong tumbler, who along with other members, dominated tumbling competitions and walked away with more first-place titles than any of the 200 other teams in the country. These athletic experiences landed him a one-year performance role in the Italian opera “Renaldo” at New York City’s Metro Opera House in 1984; the opera production went on to a new staging at Canada’s National Arts Center.

The shift in Kasim Samad’s music career began when he met DJ GFD, Cool V. He skillfully observed legendary producers Marley Mal (Cold Chilling Records) and Biz Markie’s studio sessions; learning the business of production perfection. Samad has been a hype-man, group manager, and has worked with many different industry artists such as Naughty by Nature, recording artist Katrina (Def Jam), Lyric (J Records), Balih (Interscope Records) and many more.

Hard work and determination has great benefits; drive and strive was more of a determination to progress further. Kasim Samad built Madbass Media, a studio facility that became a way of life. Today, he is a legendary producer for A-status music celebrities. When he is producing, he says “what is important is how I feel when I’m making it (music)…that’s why I like to keep a lot of positive people around me.” Samad also plays the lead and bass guitar and keyboard. To summarize the fruitful opportunities he has experienced within the music industry, Kasim Samad says, “…through all of this work I have learned so much to the point that I am able to teach the up-and-coming talent to accomplish anything they want too in this music business.”

FP YouthOutCry is no stranger to Kasim. He and CEO Al-Tariq Best have a bonded brother-friendship that has lasted for more than twenty years. As the Rhymes4Reasons! Music Business and Life Skill’s Lead Instructor and Mentor, Kasim’s production skills and knowledge has been extremely instrumental in the growth and musical development of our youth and the program. He is a dedicated mentor to the youth of Rhymes4Reasons. He is never reluctant to introduce his celebrity friends to the youth; who often times lend positive inspiration – and thus, they too become a part of the program. More importantly, the high performers within the R4R program have received internship opportunities and are then employed by Mad Bass Media as engineers, producers and writers for professional artists in the industry who still frequents Kasim’s studio.

Adam has worked with youth for over ten years in many different capacities. He worked with the Boy Scouts of America in his youth, where he learned outdoor-living basic skills. Adam has travelled to Africa and India; each were eye-awaken experiences in which he saw how beautiful and terrible the world can be. He witnessed people living side-by-side in debilitated areas; the contrasting of people, particularly children, living in tin houses while those considered as millionaires worked – the two world coexisted, but were never communicated. After he graduated from college and has made it his life’s work to connect worlds and help where ever he can, especially in the United States.

He has extensive non-profit experiences that span from disaster management to working with special needs populations. He is very interested in local food production and its ability to bring people out of poverty and allow them to eat healthy inexpensive food.
