Community-based Mentoring Program for Youth
“Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well, I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.” – Denzel Washington
Mentoring is work never forgotten, but it lasts a lifetime. We understand the complexities of the world that African American men are being raised in. We have been there. Our mentoring program addresses these complexities by pairing seasoned black leaders with emerging ones and cultivating an environment where transformation happens. Through our partnership with Tulsa Public Schools, we have reached over seven schools and hundreds of youth, shaping them into strong, healthy culturally aware, young men. From educating them on the 1921 Race Massacre to simply being a listening ear for life guidance, our members serve as positive role models, advocates, and trusted advisors for them in their most formative years.
Unlike many mentoring groups, our program is both focused and broad enough to reach a variety of youth through group, individualized and intervention mentoring.
