Not only can you find Bay Area native Armand Carr on air nightly on KBLX-FM 102.9, but you can also find him in the community creating change one young man at a time. Carr's All Tied Up works to empower young men 13-21 with a myriad of educational resources, tools and mentorship opportunities to improve their self-awareness and help them develop community leadership skills. Carr's initiative builds the personal engagement with each young man by using the basic skills of tying a tie. From the start, positive unintended outcomes - EMPOWERMENT, CONFIDENCE, SELF-RESPECT, EMPATHY - have helped shape the growing community initiative.
Brand new and gently worn ties have been donated by caring professional men in the community. To help sustain the effort and further impact Carr's work in the community, one young man at a time, feel free to donate a tie or two and/or contribute to www.alltied.org.
