Mentorship Education Network (M.E.N.)
The 100 Black Men of Phoenix Mentorship Education Network (M.E.N.) focuses on the positive self-empowerment of African- American and Hispanic adolescent males. The program consists of monthly field trips with 7th and 8th graders from the Roosevelt School District, who we have had over a 20 year partnership with. Areas of self-improvement include but not limited to academic, career development, social and emotional skill development, and culture competency.
The program includes African-American males, who are members of the 100 Black Men, that wish to serve as positive role models and mentors to young males. Young males are engaged in one-on-one and/or group mentoring sessions and structured lectures designed to teach youth about the social factors that negatively and positively impact their development.
