  2. I saw a documentary on Susan on BET introducing her as a author and spoke of her mentoring program. I can no longer locate it? Can you please direct me to the website?

  3. Was it “HISTORY MAKERS: FAITH”? I dont know where you would get a copy. Try the BET Web site (or call) to see if it is for sale.

  7. I’d like to get involved in mentoring young people. I have 20 years of experience as a Recruiter, including Essence Magazine, Time Inc., Verizon and CNN. I’ve also worked at search firms both in New York and Atlanta. Therefore, I have a great deal to give.

    Please advise me on how to get started?

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Regards,

    Camille

  8. i live in Marietta Ga and would like to reach out to all that are interest in helping our young males. i am planning a conference for boys and would like to reach out to all that can assist in making this happen. yes mentoring is very important, but our young males need education of self and movtiation into the future and the opportunity to come together peacefully to discuss issues and concerns.

    sincerely

  9. Greetings to all:

    My name is Sonjhai and I reside in the greater bay area and I am excited to announce that I too believe in the power of mentoring young persons. In the tender years of my youth, my counselor mentored me about life/coupled with my academics. I made a vow to God that once I completed my MSW in social work, I would give back my time, energy, love, widsom, to young African American youth and young adults who are motivated in pursuing career and educational attainment. Today, I am mentoring and I feel great!
    Giving is a gift that is so precious and God will reward those that utalize their gifts.

    Sonjhai Meggette, MSW
