“The State of the Black Male”
Greetings Potential EMBODI Participants,
This letter is to invite you to participate in an exciting mentoring program for the 2021 - 2022 school year. The Women of the Orlando Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. are opening our arms and hearts to welcome young men who are interested in joining the
EMBODI (Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence) Program.
EMBODI is a mentorship program that is designed to address educational, social and emotional obstacles young men of color may experience. It brings together young men, between the ages of (11 - 18) years old and in grades (6 – 12), with positive men and women who will serve as mentors for the younger men. Programs activities and events will focus on, but are not limited to, cultural/academic enrichment, building self-confidence, conflict- resolution strategies and any other issues impacting our youth.
