Mentoring of Men Inc. is a nonprofit mentor program founded in 2013 with a vision of influencing change in the African American Community and creating a cyclical pattern of servant leadership for African American Males. The overall objective of Mentoring of Men is to help adolescent African American Males mature into respectable, knowledgeable, well-rounded young men. Mentoring of Men is devoted to breaking the stereotypes and providing young African American Males access to positive African American Males with the intent of building relationships, building community and showing young men that you do not have to be an athlete, rap artist or an individual who obtains income through illegal activities to be successful.
Mentoring of Men strives to impart in its mentees that success is not defined by title or position but rather making a strategic investment in one’s own intellectual capital, building meaningful relationships, and attaining skills such as compassion, civility and integrity. Mentoring of Men is committed to preparing mentees to leave a positive imprint on their community through servant leadership. Mentoring of Men strongly believes that, “Unto whom much is given, much is required” and to that end our mentors are committed to investing in the young men we mentor providing support, opportunities for personal and professional development, brotherhood and cultural awareness. The aim of our organization is to help these young men sharpen the tools they need to become successful in the future through economics, community service, scholarship, and brotherhood.
