Become a Black Star Mentor

The Black Star Project is now offering a mentoring program for young men ages 13 to 18. The program will be one year in length, and will operate during evenings and weekends.  The goals of this Chicago-based program are:

  • To foster a positive connection between young men and their male mentors, a connection that supports the development of the values, knowledge, skills, and maturity needed for transition into full, responsible manhood.
  • To provide young males with exposure to life-affirming possibilities available to them, along with coaching on how to examine these possibilities, determine personal goals based on these possibilities, and to develop the personal strategies necessary to achieve their goals.
  • To have fun and develop positive, lasting relationships.
