Boys are arriving atmentors should be there by With all of the moving parts that day, no arrangements will be made for those who arrive late. Mentors will be needed there early to ensure the day goes smoothly. Mike recently completed Iron Man Maryland. We talk a lot about goal setting.
The idea behind this workshop is to show our boys extraordinary black representation on and off of the big screen. We want them to know that they can dream Stand Up - King Just - Go N On Em big as they dare, but that they will also be accountable to those dreams. We want to give them to tools to translate those dreams into goals so that they may start chipping away at them.
We had about 12 youth tickets and 12 adult tickets, after the movie, like other movie workshops with the mentee, we discuss the movie and the messaging. The movie had several messages and parallels. Most of the mentee aligned with the role of Michael B. Giving the parallels of the youth we serve and their backgrounds, that was interesting.
