Journey To Radiance Ep. 11: "A Mentor's Journey"

Happy National Mentoring Month! If you're unfamiliar, National Mentoring Month is an opportunity to give back by becoming a mentor to a young person and/or youth leader in your community. To honor the role and impact of mentors, we've dedicated our latest episode of the "Journey To Radiance" podcast series to lifting up a few great mentors in the Black Male Achievement field, while also exploring some of the challenges mentors face along with recommendations on how to overcome them.

This is a fun and lively episode with lots of laughter, but also one rich with deep discussion around the intensity that can come with mentoring. Our guests for this month include:

  • Stephen Powell, National CARES Mentoring Movement
  • Don Dunbar and Olafemi Bankh Akintunde, Mentors for National CARES Mentoring Movement
  • Marlene Fox, CBMA Senior Consultant
