A group of NESC members are participating in a five-session “Life Cycle Mentoring” program to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem, which meets at the Frederick Douglass Academy on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard.
The first session, co-sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), covered the topic of cyber-bullying. The second session was held in February, which focused on college. Club members express enthusiasm for these mentoring efforts. Future sessions will include career, family, and community service.
Frederick Douglass Academy draws students in grades 6-through-12 from the entire metropolitan area; well over 90% of its graduates go on to college.
