WHO WE ARE

untitled_edited.png

Since 1998, SBX Youth & Family Services has provided services in the Inland Empire to youth and their families. SBX began at Rialto High School in 1998 by a teacher – Ernest Rhone IV alongside a group of high school students. Together, they set out to develop future professional leaders under the principles of wisdom, brotherhood, sisterhood, service, endurance, excellence, and unity.

 

Today, SBX is still led by the same teacher and high school students working towards the same goals and mission – to develop young people, serve families in the Inland Empire, and break the cycle of poverty and violence. So it is said, so it is done.
