A Mom’s Perspective: It Takes a Village to Raise a Child

I think all young people could benefit from mentors. Young boys, especially young boys of color, go through so many issues in how to identify themselves. Being able to identify with another male who has gone through the murky waters of boyhood helps. I also think it’s important for a young boy to have a mentor because they can help guide them through that time of their life especially if they don’t already have a male role model in their lives. Those two outings a month mean so much to a young boy, it just helps them grow up. It is extremely important for their confidence, well-being, and physical health.
