A MESSAGE TO OUR MENTEES, MENTORS, PARENTS AND FUTURE MENTEES. DURING THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) OUTBREAK
In light of the developments regarding COVID-19, BTM would like to first say that our thoughts are with those affected by the virus in and around North Carolina and here in Charlotte/ Mecklenburg. At Boys to Men Foundation, the well-being and safety of our mentors, mentees, parents and communities are our top priority. As we closely monitor the evolving impact, we are implementing ongoing measures to ensure the health and safety of all who are apart of our BTM family.
We are keeping up with the guidance of the World Health Organization, CDC and state and local authorities related to travel, quarantine, meetings and events, and we will continue to adjust our guidance accordingly. We will accept new mentees as soon as we are given the green light to proceed with business as usual. As we navigate through these challenging times, we are reminded of how fortunate we are to be part of this strong community that supports each other to accomplish great things. It is the power of this community that will propel us through this to better times.
As a part of our program, young men and boys age 9-17 receive mentoring and tutoring, as well as home and school visits by our qualified mentors. In order to participate in the program, parents and students must participate in our community service activities and parents must attend monthly parent workshops provided by the BTM Foundation.
The stark consequences of youth unemployment, especially among youth of color, elevate the importance of workforce development programming that provides good options for young people. BTM has developed critical strategies and best practices, spotlights exemplars, and identifies additional resources and sponsor partners to develop and implement workforce development programs for BTM mentees in their communities.
