The Alpha Mu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. has teamed up with the administrators and community coordinators of Lincoln elementary school in Bethlehem, PA this semester to pilot our "Each One Reach One" Mentoring Program.
The sole purpose of the program is to expose willing and enthusiastic young males in need of positive attention at Lincoln Elementary to a collective group of positive black male influences. It is also to allow them to build a report and establish true friendships with strong men.
The Lincoln Elementary administrators selected the young boys with the most challenging backgrounds from the entire school body. Overall, eight young gentleman were selected based on their behavior, grades and home life. This semester the group consists of third and fourth grade boys.
During the pilot, the program has included homework/study time, reading workshops, quiz bowls, active play including physical training and education, team building activities, special guest speakers, and even sessions for life lessons.
Among these lessons we have shared with the boys the importance of respect for self, young ladies and others as well as the power of knowledge and understanding.
With the constant dedication of time, effort, energy and enthusiasm, we at AMN believe we have and will continue to make this program an awesome catalyst for positivity and a perpetuation of true Manhood in our community and ultimately in our society.
