The Essentials: A Curriculum for People Who Mentor Young Black Men

Posted by Mentoring Partnership & Resource Center on October 5, 2015

Free Training for People Who Mentor Young Black Men!

The Mentoring Partnership & Resource Center is offering the opportunity for people who mentor young Black men and boys to be trained free of cost in The Essentials: A Curriculum for People Who Mentor Young Black Men.

This profound training engages mentors in taking an in depth look at power and privilege in mentoring relationships and learn strategies to navigate these complex issues in ways that will positively impact Black young men and boys. In three modules, the participants will explore their own cultural competency and views on privilege and race, identify social capital, and gain an understanding of the importance of racial identity.

Participants will gain tools for building ethnic/racial pride, helping to empower the mentee and family, and explore research-based strategies that can assist mentors as they embrace a critical consciousness in their work with young Black men. Even the most seasoned mentors can benefit from such a contemplative examination at their own experiences, and how they relate to their mentee.

The training will take place October 21, 2015 8:30 AM to 5 PM and October 22, 2015, 8:30 AM to 1 PM at The United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.

Don’t miss your chance to develop skills that will increase your efficacy as a mentor and your capacity to positively impact young Black men, free of cost! Seats are limited, register today!
