According to DePaul University’s Bernadette Sanchez, PhD in Community Prevention Research, both formal and informal mentoring:
• Lessens the negative effects of racial discrimination by promoting Black & Latino boys’ racial identity, leading to positive effects in various aspects of their lives.
• Benefits Black & Latino boys in a range of areas; including academics, social-emotional well-being, mental health, and the prevention of risky behaviors, through group processes.
Black and Latino men from Milwaukee and the surrounding area willing to commit their time and impart their wisdom to MPS’ Black and Latino boys as they navigate an ever challenging social landscape.
Encourage, inspire and advice during group mentoring luncheons, following outlined format provided by BLMA Team.
Meet every 1st Thursday of the month from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at an assigned school, following our Twelve Guiding Principles that support and encourage our Black and Latino boys involvement and success in school.
Schools for this year include: Bradley Tech, Riverside, South Division, Washington, and Vincent.
