IMG_0547  Most of what we do may be described as mentorship or tutoring. The tutoring focuses on math, English, and science. We are sometimes asked what the mentorship entails. Our weekly mentorship groups are structured, have a 90 minute agenda, make extensive use of short videos to stimulate discussion, and have the broad purpose of developing critical thinking skills. The topics vary widely and are often controversial so as to encourage lively debate and challenge the boys’ analytical skills. Common topics pertain to life skills, educational and career opportunities, coping with peer pressure, and the risk factors associated with growing up fatherless. Equally important, we also believe that we are bridging racial divides.
