Mentoring Sessions in FDL School District

"It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken men"

-Fredrick Douglas

There was a need and Ebony Vision answered the call!

We have been ask by  principals to facilitate mentoring sessions and to provide mentors in some of the schools for our African American male students.  There are 2-components that we have added to our main mentoring program (Men of Vision):

  •  8-12 week mentoring program (can be longer).
  • The Dream Team

Mission: By going to where the students are to give impactful guidance to meet their needs to ensure success in school and in the community.  

Objective:​ To be a point of contact, conquer cultural barriers and to assist in the education and well being of African American males while in school.

Outcome:​ Improve student's self esteem,  decline referrals,  close the disproportionate gaps.

IMentoring Programs we create monthly themes that are Thought provoking discussions on topics like accountability, leadership, how to be advocate for yourself and others topics.
