The Frazier Kid Foundation is a 501(c)3 founded in 2021 with a mission to expose disadvantaged and underrepresented youth to careers in the arts. Founded in 2021 by Brian Frazier, the Frazier Kid Foundation was created to be a permanent solution to developing youth as productive and prosperous citizens.

Through his production company Frazier Kid Productions, LLC, Brian, and his team have worked on projects for such clients as Microsoft, A&E Television Network, Black Entertainment (BET), TLC Network, Goodwill Industries of Michiana, University of Notre Dame and more. Additionally, Brian has worked for WNDU, WHME and WNIT television stations in South Bend, IN and brings more than 15 years of broadcasting experience to the foundation. His goal is to share what he's learned through all of these experiences with the youth of Michiana.


Filming for a Better Future

A community-based program partnership with Vincennes University, Indiana Parenting Institute, and New Beginnings Center for Change. The program builds upon the successful videography workshops implemented for the Vincennes University 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Through the after-school program in Fort Wayne, Kid Frazier Productions and a team of youth participants were able to produce quality videos telling the stories of Early College and the students. According to the Wallace Foundation (2018), research indicates that after-school and summer programming contributes to the reduction of youth crime and violence. Addressing the soaring youth violence that occurs after school hours, the Filming for a Better Future program provides an interactive, hands-on, skills-based out-of-school alternative for low-income, first-generation South Bend youth, grades 9th through 12th.

See More, Be More HBCU Tour

After taking a life changing tour of historically black colleges and universities, Brian was inspired to attend Tennessee State University where he earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Mass Communications. The HBCU college tour was so impactful on the students who participated that Brian and the foundation will take local Michiana students on a similar tour. The hope is to raise awareness of HBCU's while also dispelling some of the negative myths and misconceptions associated with black colleges and universities.

The "See More, Be More" Scholarship

This scholarship will be awarded to a Michiana high school senior with a minimum GPA of 3.0, who plans on attending Tennessee State University (or any other HBCU if the preference is not available)

The "Greg Frazier Essential Needs" Scholarship

In the memory of Greg Frazier, this scholarship will be awarded to a current college student to buy essential needs while on campus.

About us

The Frazier Kid Foundation was created to expose at-risk and underrepresented youth to careers in the arts. This mission was birthed by Brian Frazier after watching his parents serve the Michiana community for many years through a program they created titled "New Beginnings Center for Change".

The New Beginnings Program, was designed to change the lives of ordinary people by expanding their awareness of resources and equipping them with spiritual and natural tools to excel in life. With this program, 'New Beginnings' was able to find job placement for ex offenders, provide counseling and rehabilitation services for people dealing with substance abuse, provide clothing to the homeless and much more.

With such great examples in front of him, it's no wonder why servitude is a part of Brian's DNA. In 2018 Brian began teaching students in the Fort Wayne Community video production through the 21st scholars program. He enjoyed it so much, that he continued to offer it and expand it for 3 years until it had to unfortunately cease due to the Covid19 pandemic. To this day, Brian keeps in touch with some of the students from the program and a few of the students have gone on to pursue video production after graduating high school.

After being forced to stop the program due to Covid19, Brian pivoted to creating his own foundation that would allow him to provide youth in his community with the same opportunity to learn a valuable trade. By doing so, he hopes to give them something positive to do after school, in a safe environment while at the same time open their minds towards careers in the arts and entrepreneurship.
