Black Men of Honor Mentor Program

The Black Star Project's Black Men of Honor Mentor Program serves young Black men in Chicago ages 6 to 18.

Mothers have been great raising their sons but they cannot do it alone.

One of the glaring weaknesses of the Black community is the paucity of quality mentor programs to support youth, families, schools and communities.

The Black Star Project has found very few programs in Chicago and those that exist have almost no funding for this important work.

The Black Men of Honor Mentor Program meets four times a month; has a one mentor to 4 youth ratio; works on the issues of respecting elders; teaches youth to value education; teaches youth to honoring parents, young women and girls; teaches youth to be leaders and not followers; connects youth to positive male role models; travels to other parts of the city on field trips; brings in guest speakers; practices self-discipline; and more.

For more information about the Black Men of Honor Mentor Program, please call Ivory Harris at 773.285.9600.  The Black Men of Honor Mentor Program is based at 3509 South King Drive, Suite 2B in Chicago, Illinois.
