Kublai K.M. Toure is the Executive Director of Amer-I-Can Illinois, Inc., and a non-for-profit 501(c) 3 organization.He is responsible for directing all activities including the development of programs that address the positive needs of "at-risk" youth and ex-offenders.Amer-I-Can Illinois, Inc. has a staff of an assistant director, program manager, ten facilitators and two secretaries.
As a teenager, Kublai was a member of a Chicago gang.Gang life in the sixties for young black male children was difficult, a child attempting to become a man but without adults leading them to their rights-of-passage; constantly required to recruit new members and developing new ways of bringing money into the organization; and, the violence expected of you as a member.Kublai has been shot at on numerous occasions, participated in gang wars and was beaten by members of other gangs on numerous occasions.
As a member of the gang, Kublai began to realize with the help of a Black Nationalist and several high school teachers that the carnage of other African-American and their communities had to be stopped and the youth redirected to a more positive force, thereby beginning a positive asset to their communities and people.Kublai retreated from the gang and continued his education.Kublai earned a Bachelor degree in Education and Ethic Studies and a Masters in Social Science and Corrections.He subsequently worked in the social services fields and finally at the age of 36 years, became a fireman for the Chicago Fire Department.
Dysfunctional families played a huge role in the lives of youth, basically, without adult attention and authority.Kublai's mother became an alcoholic after being a loving and kind parent during his early years.She had a job and was the adult authority of the family until she started to drink heavily and having blackouts.She would leave the house and not return for several days or weeks.His father would come to the house, provide food, and pay the rent.Kublai's father lived with his other family of two children, two girls.At the age of thirteen, Kublai's mother had developed a brain tumor and surgery was performed on her brain.When his uncle took him to see her in the hospital she did not recognize her children.

Back to school rally offers book bags, music and more - Woodlawn New Communities Program, 19 Aug 2006 [cached]
CAPS program officer Angela Browder, Kublai Toure of Amer-I-Can, and Jerri Proter, of the Third District Youth Committee, at community rally.
Kublai Toure, executive director of Amer-I-Can Illinois, said events like the rally are important. "You bring a lot of these youth together that probably won't get a chance to see each other when they get in school, or they get to meet one another and they'll know each other when they get in school. It kind of cuts down on the confusion about turf," Toure explained. At the rally, the retired firefighter was given an award for his work with at-risk youth and ex-offenders, including giving a grant that paid for baseball uniforms and equipment for a little league team.
"We know that they have a serious problem of 'turf' and now they've closed down a lot of schools, a lot of these kids got to go through certain (gang) boundaries. This is really good to neutralize that, so they can see each other going back and forth," he said.
