Karla McCullough is the Co-Founder and Co-Project Director of the Ambassadors of the Evers Academy for African-American Males (A-TEAAM). She is also the Executive Director for the Juanita Sims Doty Foundation. Her work for the healing of BYMOC is focused on enabling them to create a parallel with historical references and their own lived experiences for the development of positive health, behavior, and outcomes. Karla has used her training in research and development to create a culturally responsive curriculum that uses the “Possible Selves (PS)” theory as the lens to encourage future-oriented thought. The curriculum is used to train a database of 200-300 active volunteers and mentors to successfully and effectively serve BYMOC across the country. She has also supported numerous programs across the state of Mississippi with program design for sports and academics, mentoring and peer-to-peer mentoring to assist BYMOC to heal and thrive.
