Cause:  Education

Project:  Six Young Philanthropists recruited 50 Black men to sign-up for mentoring programs.  A young Black boy has a 1 in 3 chance of going to prison in his life compared to 1 in 17 of his counterparts.  Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Black males who have gone to prison, dropped out of school.  The team will try to improve these statistics by increasing the number of male mentors.

Impact: 50 Young Black Boys Mentored by 50 Black Men

Young Philanthropists Participating:  Ora Wiseman, Garrett James, Joshlyn Ross, Jennifer Rhodan, Letitia Tajuba, Nicholas Gourdine

UPDATE:   The Men Who Mentor YP Giving Circle hosted a mixer on May 29, 2013, from 5:30pm – 8:30pm at Lost Society.  This event connected young black professional men to mentoring organizations looking for male mentors.  To date 53 men signed up as mentors.
