Complete – Recruit 50 Black Male Mentors
Complete – Recruit 50 Black Male Mentors | #MenWhoMentor Iniaitive
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
