On March 16, 2016 fourteen Mayfair 6th graders joined eight Shaw High School students for the Boys to Men Initiative. This program enables Shaw students to mentor Mayfair students under the guidance of mentors’ that hold various positions throughout the district. During this session we reviewed academic goals and talked about the importance of being on time. Students were asked to embrace this adage- “To be early is to be on time, to be on time is to be late, to be late is unacceptable.” Further, we discussed the college goals and many of the young men stated what college they would like to attend. Lastly, we did a focus exercise where a circle was formed by all participants and a ball was thrown, the individual that caught the ball would have to remember who he threw it to and from whom he caught it . Eventually 7 balls were going around the circle. The point being anything is possible if you focus. This session proved beneficial for all involved.
