Mentoring young men of color: meeting the needs of African American and Latino students
Mentoring Young Men of Color: Meeting the Needs of African American and Latino Students examines the subject of youth mentoring through a cultural lens. The work not only investigates the value of school-based mentoring in the lives of these youngsters, but also offers alternative and constructive ways in which our society can experience and embrace this social group. Positioning mentoring as a cultural practice, this book informs schools and communities of their ethical role and responsibility in fighting the public assault on America's youth by helping young males of color develop a deeper sense of self-awareness and the power they possess.
