People can change, but first they must have to know how to change. Many troubled youth do not have a positive role model in their lives to help them know how to act responsibly or how to change. Through Straight Talk – Sound Direction individual mentoring, My Brother’s Keeper helped individuals to deal with the hardships in their life by helping them learn to live with Integrity, Respect, and Standards. During the mentoring sessions a connection, an atmosphere of trust, was developed with each client. An understanding of the client’s problems was developed and a game plan to address the problems was jointly prepared. Clients were told what they NEEDED TO hear, not just what they WANTED TO hear. Through a series of individual mentoring sessions the clients’ progress was tracked and clients were provided with the knowledge and skill to make positive decisions and changes in their lives.
In our lives, most of us have had one individual, a teacher, a coach, a family member, who has been our guide, our trusted model who has positively influenced our life. Harry has helped us understand how to face and solve our problems, he taught us personal accountability and respect for others. Harry helped us understand how to control our lives and become productive citizens. He has changed our lives and helped make us who we are today.
Not everyone is that lucky. Many at-risk boys in our community have had no role model, no mentor, or worse a negative role model. My Brother’s Keeper has been that trusted mentor for numerous men and boys since its inception. My Brother’s Keeper will continue to be that trusted mentor for many at-risk boys in our communities.
