Mentoring Young Men of Color: Meeting the Needs of African American and Latino Students examines the subject of youth mentoring through a cultural lens. The work not only investigates the value of school-based mentoring in the lives of these youngsters, but also offers alternative and constructive ways in which our society can experience and embrace this social group. Positioning mentoring as a cultural practice, this book informs schools and communities of their ethical role and responsibility in fighting the public assault on America's youth by helping young males of color develop a deeper sense of self-awareness and the power they possess.

Finally a book that helps youth mentors, even teachers, develop a new way 'using basic human and heartfelt classroom methods' of connectinng with Black & Hispanic males. I really enjoyed the personal stories of the young people at the end. This is a must read and a must have resource.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
