The HOOD Mentoring Program
The HOOD Mentoring program, in collaboration with the Richmond Teen Center, hosts mentoring programs for middle and high schoolers on Tuesday evenings introducing youth in the community to empowering and influential individuals. Through this program, the youth can experience presentations where individuals share their stories about resilience, mental health awareness, determination, and more. This program allows youth to connect through their experiences and serves as a place to grow their skills through curriculum-based learning and real-life situations. Some examples of such skills are accountability, communication, listening, and self-awareness, among many more. The photos above show some of the HOOD club during and before presentations in the Spring of 2022. Some speakers we have had during 2022 include Hasan Davis, Martina Jackson, and Reggie Hanson.
