An innovative male mentoring program is inviting men from different ethnic backgrounds to take part in an intensive weekend training program that can help them develop their ability to work powerfully with men and boys from different communities.
The Brighton-based charity behind the initiative – abandofbrothers – was established by a community of men who are committed to creating positive social change through personal development and community building. They aim to support disaffected young men in making a healthy transition to manhood by building powerful mentoring networks that these young men can call upon in times of need.
They are now looking to expand their network by involving more men from different cultural backgrounds and are particularly keen to provide training to men from black and minority ethnic communities who are already working with young men or interested in becoming mentors.
Men who would like to get involved in this innovative projected are invited to take part in an intensive weekend training in Sussex that runs from 6pm on Friday October 7th until 3pm on Sunday 9th October.
The fee for the weekend – which is called Beyond The Hero, Beyond Ethnicity – is dependant on your financial circumstances. The standard fee is £200, which is reduced to £80 for men in low paid employment and any man currently experiencing financial hardship can apply for a free place and will be asked to give 5 hours of local volunteering time to work with young people.
