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 and George Gervin Prep Academy. Our partnership with Roosevelt has spanned over 20 years and Gervin since 2019. 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.
