What could be more powerful and satisfying than changing the life of a child?

With more than 10,000 members in eighty-two chapters in the United States, the Virgin Islands, and Africa, the 100 Black Men of America is one of the most highly recognized non-profit organizations in the African American community. Now, for the first time, the "100" shares the successful blueprint of its Miracles of Mentoring program, from which more than 100,000 kids of all colors have benefited.

In this engaging and heartfelt work, the 100 Black Men of America shows you exactly what you can do to invest in America's future by mentoring a child.

In a style that is friendly and instructive, National President Thomas W. Dortch, Jr., outlines the how-to's of mentoring. Whether you're on the front line working one-to-one with a mentee, or are a part of a collaborativegroup mentoring effort, The Miracles of Mentoring will teach you: the ten tickets of mentoring; how to figure out if mentoring is for you; the five stages of the mentoring relationship; how to create a mentoring partnership in your community or workplace.

Also included are inspirational stories from the members of the "100" and their nationwide outreach—the thousands of African American men who give of themselves, "real men giving real time"—and from the young people whose lives have been enriched. A comprehensive resource section of mentoring organizations and programs closes the book.

As Thomas W. Dortch, Jr., President of the "100," says in the Introduction: "When you give of your time, experience and wisdom to a young person, you're sowing the seeds of pride, confidence and accomplishment."
