The Black Star Project has created a mentor program called “The Warrior, Scholar, & Healer” and are looking for 50 young males ages 13-18 years old.  If you’re looking to give back to your community, get service hours for school, or volunteer opportunities to place on your resume, this is something for you.

I currently mentor youth on a daily basis and let me be the first to say there’s great reward in helping others.  Not only do you get to meet a wide range of people, but you can also have a lasting impact on someone’s life.  Here’s a little bit about the opportunity:

 The Warrior, Scholar, Healer 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.

Youth must live between 2200 South and 5500 South in Chicago to participate in this program.

Here’s the contact info: Call Comella or Chris at 773.285.9600.  The Black Star Warrior, Scholar, Healer Mentor Program will be based at 3509 South King Drive, Suite 2B in Chicago, Illinois.
