Description

It's time for the annual Manhood 101 Mentoring Sessions Conference where we encourage young men to explore college and careers and while they learn some important life skills. One of the highlights of this 1 day conference is that young men have the opportunity to meet and interact with positive male role models, which contradict the negative narrative that they usually encounter. This conference is intended for young men ages 8-18 and it is the largest conference of its kind.

This year, Manhood 101 Mentoring Sessions will be held at Beasley Academic Center, located at 5255 S. State Street in Chicago IL., Saturday November 4, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Check-in begins at 8:15 a.m.

Some general highlights for this year’s Manhood 101 Mentoring Sessions include:

  • Hope For A Better Tomorrow’s Founder and the Phi Beta Sigma Illinois State Director, Richard Brown will lead the Ties That Bind observance.
  • Radio Personality Trey White will serve as the conference host.
  • Radio and TV personality Bionce Foxx will speak at the Parent Resource Fair.
  • Every young man who participates will be given a new neck tie or bow tie and taught how to tie it.
  • Every young man will participate in several small group interactive mentoring sessions that have articulated and intentional educational objectives.
  • Every young man will enjoy a well-rounded lunch.
  • More than 50 black men will be present, moderating workshops and helping in a variety of capacities, while promoting higher education acquisition, career exploration, and life skills development.
  • The parent resource fair, occurring simultaneously as the mentoring sessions, will connect parents with resources and engaging them in activities while their sons are participating in the mentoring sessions.
