“Reach One and Teach One”…one heart and one mind at a time. Mentoring young males is more than establishing a program, but a lifelong connection that a mentee can always draw upon or give back depending on the need. The “Bridge to the Millennials” mentoring program will encompass some of the key elements and best practices of mentoring such as establishing mentor/mentee
relationships; setting mentee goals and monitoring progress. We believe mentoring extends beyond programs and should be a way of daily life that involves investing in our young people. Investing in them today is critical for our combined success tomorrow.
Our mentoring programs mission is to educate, encourage and elevate young males (ages 14 – 24) towards their purpose and passion in life. We believe our young males are all “Destined for Success” and our job is to help them discover and reach goals that will improve their quality of life. Establishing a mentor/mentee relationship will be key to exposing the mentee to tools and resources that will help them make informative decisions that have a positive impact on their daily lives and future. Decisions impacting them as young people that transition with them into adulthood (education, career, family, etc).
Specific areas our mentoring programs focus on are:
- Career Options
- Conflict Resolution
- Job Interviewing
- Education in public schools (resources)
- Access to higher education
- Health and Fitness
