Overview

"How many times have you said, 'I'd like to help a child, but I don't know what to do? I don't have the time, I don't have anything to offer, I can't afford it.' I promise you, by the time you finish reading this book, all of these questions will be answered."

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 collaborative/group 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"—andfrom 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."

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With a membership roster that reads like a Who's Who in Black America, the 100 Black Men of America (which now has 10,000 members) is not simply a schmoozing club. This inspirational and practical book forms just one part of the organization's efforts to improve the lives of children, bring hope and opportunity to neglected neighborhoods and put jails out of business. Citing startling statistics to buttress his argument that mentoring programs can make a powerful impact in young people's lives (in one high school class, the 100 improved graduation rates from 43% to 97%), Dortch, 100 Black Men's president, explains how "mentoring the 100 way shows kids how to replicate success, not just material success, but total success in their lives." In chapters such as "Is Mentoring for You? Questions to Consider Before You Start" and "Doing It Right: The Ten Tickets to Mentoring," Dortch clarifies the responsibilities the role entails. And though many pages are devoted to the programs of specific chapters of 100 Black Men (West Texas's Rites of Passage program, Atlanta's Saturday Academy, Louisville's Project MALE, etc.), Dortch's advice applies to all adults interested in helping young people develop their confidence and achieve their goals. (Despite the 100's name, their mentors and those mentored include many women and girls.) Fluently written and filled with warm, personal anecdotes from participants in the 100's programs, the book inspires readers to take the time to become "advocates, advisers and role models" in a young person's life.
