Mentoring

The Foundation provides a mentoring program designed to cultivate meaningful relationships and opportunities for young African American men. Our mentors offer valuable support and guidance as mentees navigate their careers, and mentees receive feedback about personal and career growth, and together a lifelong relationship is created.

Mentoring is a unique partnership between two people based on a commitment to the mentoring process, common goals/expectations of the partnership, and mutual trust and respect. Mentoring is a "get and give" experience to provide a rich and rewarding experience for both partners.
