A mentorship program dubbed “A Few Good Men” was officially launched yesterday and the organizers, Jamie Saunders and Arthur Thomas believe that it will pave the way to addressing the issues confronting men in Antigua and Barbuda.
The program, the brainchild of the duo organized to “create a cadre of positive male role models in Antigua and Barbuda, that will form part of a larger network, dedicated to supporting the healthy development of boys and provide a safe space for them to receive guidance, skills and constructive advice.”
The mentorship program is targeted to boys and young men between the ages of 12-18 years of age.
The programs will be held once every month according to the organizers who also claimed that the young men can benefit from the program and its session on a voluntary basis.
The program will also be engaging with schools, churches, community groups, as well as sports groups.
The inaugural session of the program included a keynote address from Senator Clement Antonio.
Attorney at Law Arthur Thomas Jr, also spoke to the boys on professional development and preparing for the World of work
