Mentorship and Support for Young Men on Campus
Research tells is that despite progress on many fronts, young men of color still face many obstacles to success in college (Wimer & Bloom, 2014). What can be done? Who is responsible? What are the interventions that can provide real hope and real results? Is there, in fact, a way to move away from deficit-focused characterizations of young men of color to ones that recognize and build on their resilience and strengths? This session addresses these questions and explores personal experiences where mentorship and other support interventions had a positive and lasting impact.
