CAPCC Blog: Chatham Youth Mentoring Corps?

A post on the Chatham/Avalon Park Community Council blog that seemed to buried underneath other stories. It's entitled "It's Time for a Chatham Youth Mentoring Corps"

I think it's worth discussing. Can anyone specify what you see are the barriers form this happening?
Do you think mentors for the young people in our community would prove useful toward the development of our community. It would be productive if educated, skilled and trained men and women, seniors and middle-aged residents would reach out to the youth in Chatham, bring them under their wings and mentor them with internships and apprenticeships in business, the professions, athletics, the arts and sciences, beyond what they have learned in the school systems, and give them a stipend for their efforts and participation.

Would you like to be a mentor for a few hours a week? It would cross the generational gaps with a bridge of trust, communication, and understanding to reach areas of common interests.

Perhaps you would want to step up and create and lead a Chatham Youth Mentoring Corps.

Let us know by leaving your comments on the comment line.

Some interesting thoughts. Is this happening on some level anywhere in the community?

  1. Join the ROLE MODEL MOVEMENT if you're thirsty for knowledge. Intelligence is wealth. Knowledge is power. Once per month RMM President Jahmal Cole will formally talk to a growing audience in the Chatham community. This material discussed will not be religious, only history based. Our intent is to educate people, not pressure them into any type of affinity. More information and flyers will be coming soon at the GCA Election March 20th.
