Community Mentors

Our mentoring approach unites the powerful mentoring elements present in Clubs with formal mentoring practices and research/evidence-based prevention programs. MBGC provides a combination of one-on-one, group, and peer mentoring services. Mentoring is site-based and provided by Club staff, volunteers, and peers, with ongoing efforts to recruit minority male mentors.
