    Mentoring

    AFB partners and connects participants with strong, supportive men who encourage our young men to become positive forces in their communities. This interactive group opportunity encourages participants to become strong, positive men in the face of overwhelmingly negative environmental forces that surround them (drugs, gangs, and violence). Mentors and guest speakers serve as role models as they introduce participants to an alternate blueprint for how to successfully live their lives.

    A dynamic group of men, are committed to being positive role models for young males. Prospective mentors register, attend an intake and orientation session, including an interview with the Advisory Board.
