I understand the challenges of our youth in the African American community. I also understand that it will take leadership, commitment and actions by the African American community supported by businesses, schools, churches, the community at large and individuals like me.
I understand that the individual commitment is needed more than ever because of the current state of affairs in the African American community. It will take individuals like me making a commitment to get involved in some of the strategic levels already available to me as an individual.
The Real Life 101 organization is focusing its efforts on the African American male youth because of the horrific statistics that exist. I realize that I must be involved and commit myself to taking some level of action so that I can be part of the solution.
As such, I pledge to commit to the Real Life 101 mentoring program and its 10 Rules of Engagement.
I am making this commitment because I want to be part of the change that it will take from each of us to begin to bring attention and solutions to this real and ever threatening dynamic in the African American community.
My submission of this form is representative of my commitment and pledge. I will make the necessary adjustments in my schedule to foster and facilitate the Real Life 101 mentoring program Rules of Engagement.
