This is to my brothers.

Mentor: A wise or trusted teacher or counselor.
Sadly, many of our young boys are missing the companionship of a successful adult male influence in their lives. I am routinely asked to be a mentor for young boys who need a positive male reference. I am always grateful for the opportunity to mold young lives and send troubled youths onto the right path. Yet, I can not do this alone, I need your help. So for all my brothers out there making good moves in the community, the workplace and their homes; become a mentor today. Whether you are a self-made business man, a carpenter or even a bus driver, we need you.

To give you a leg up, I’m supplying the links to two mentoring programs for young men. Where else can we volunteer? Please feel free to leave other organizations in the comment section.
