Event description

Description

In order to build authentic relationships with young Black and Latino men and boys, mentors must delve deep into their own power and privilege, unpack their own biases, and understand how to manage and use them in a mentoring relationship.

In this training mentors will:

  • Become more deeply aware of and reflect on their own power and privilege, and gain skills and strategies needed to develop authentic relationships with youth
  • Develop an understanding of the diverse resources present in mentees' communities
  • Support young Black and Latino men in their journey of empowerment with evidence-based strategies, and work positively towards structural change
  • Expand their mentoring networks

"I'm leaving with so much more than I entered the room with."

"[I enjoyed] the ability to talk real about the problems of Black men and boys. There was no tip-toeing around the real issues."

"[I enjoyed] the diversity of the group, the content and delivery, and the presenters."

Length: eight hours for the full training curriculum

Intended audience: mentoring program staff, current mentors, and future mentors of young Black and Latino men

Prerequisite: participants acknowledge the existence of structural racism and its impact on young Black and Latino men

This training will take place over two half-days:

October 17, 2017 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM and October 24, 2017 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM

Attendance both days is mandatory to earn a certificate of completion!

No refunds will be issued.
