Mentors and students outside Fiserv Forum for BLMA 1st Thursdays Luncheon kick-off for 2018 Boys and Men of Color week.

The BLMA 1st Thursday Mentor Luncheons are designed to offer open dialogue to lead conversations between our mentors and mentees for our luncheon sessions. The flow of our luncheons consist of:

  • Opening self-care activity that incorporates mindfulness and journaling.
  • Questions for the mentoring luncheon derived from our 12 Guiding Principles.
  • "Breaking Bread" component, where our mentors and mentees engage in a combination of formal and informal dialogue.   

According to 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 academicssocial-emotional well-beingmental health, and the prevention of risky behaviors, through group processes.

Our department is looking for Black & Latino males to participate as mentors. This year we will be serving Bradley Tech, Riverside, South Division, Vincent, and Washington high schools. Interested in becoming a mentor, click on "Informational Form" and "MPS Background Check" in the colunm on the right side of this page. Please indicate you will be working with BLMA and know this will be processed as soon as possible.
