Award-winning Mentoring Institute for Minority Youth Begins 2014 Fall Tour
TheBlackManCan Institute presents 2nd Annual fall tour impacting close to 1,000 Black & Latino Youth
Recognized by The Boston Globe with positive imagery of boys, kindergarten through ninth-grade, TBMCI was also awarded for their involvement with youth nationally and internationally at the 3rd Annual Ujima Awards. The vanguard vision of this organization leads the way to uplift, empower, educate and motivate young men of color globally.
Focused on excellence and self-image, TMBCI is answering the cry for a response to the lingering challenges Black boys and men face nationally, including gun violence within communities or by law enforcement. The Institute has tailored its workshops to reflect the environment and social climate of the young men they are serving, such as the previous Cambridge stop where majority of the children lived and went to school in wealthier, predominately white communities or in Memphis where volunteers worked with teens who nearly all had juvenile criminal records.
The 2014 Fall Tour kicks off Friday, September, 19 at 5 p.m for the 1000 T.I.E.S fundraiser event hosted by TheBlackManCan.org at Laetus Restaurant & Lounge followed by theTBMCI at Park School of Baltimore on Saturday, September 20 from 9 am – 3 pm with a light breakfast and lunch provided. Parents and teachers can register boys in grades 3 - 12th grades for free by visiting http://tbmcinstitute.theblackmancan.org/
Young men of Color attending TheBlackManCan Institute will have their cultural needs addressed, being free to express themselves while fostering brotherhood. Powerful workshops and keynote speakers will empower and educate the young men in attendance. All attendees will receive ties and a copy of Brandon’s debut title, Define Yourself, Redefine the World: A Guided Journal for Black Boys and Men, which is now available at Baltimore City College curriculum for their African-American men’s program and is being used as a therapeutic starting point for empowerment, self-love, and forward progress for young males.
