"Being part of a Black men's group-mentoring project when I was in high school, a program that spoke to who I was and what I needed, taught me fully what it means to be a responsible Black man." –Dasaw Floyd, 29, medical student, Charleston, S.C.

Why Mentor?

Because this is our state of emergency today:

  • Of all Black fourth-graders, 58% are functionally illiterate.
  • In some cities, 80% of our boys drop out before finishing high school.
  • Every day 1,000 Black children are arrested.
  • 1 in every 8 African American males ages 25-29 is incarcerated.
  • The number one cause of death for our boys is homicide.
