Join us on Wednesday, April 16th at 9pm Est for a #GMPChat with Shawn Dove @DoveSoars on the power of mentoring boys.
We will be chatting about what men can do to become role models and help boys and young men on their journey to adulthood.
- How can men show up in the lives of boys and help guide them for the future?
- What are the benefits of a mentoring relationship for both the mentor and mentee?
- How can parents find appropriate mentoring programs for their son?

As creative communities director for the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts he led a national initiative that partnered community schools of the arts and public housing communities in 20 U.S. cities.
