    The Natural Mentoring Experience

    in Self Help

    As a mentoring show I try to bring attention to what a great need there is for black people to share our experiences with each other, as being a perhaps, a first step or next step towards loving and caring about each other in an unprecedented manner.  For without love for each other, genuine love from the heart born of struggles and strifes, we flaunder terribly: very badly or unpleasantly. Although our intentions are honorable and heartfelt, does the white racism supremacist plan somehow filter in to disrupt our goals?  Maybe via our subconscious, so that our messages to each other are only half successful?  And the other half that is left is our multifaceted anger towards each other that lingers?  Have we not seen the video clips, sound bites of our people going at each other in a fashion that would make the white racist supremist proud of their handy work?  And in the end we are left with what we started with, their plan to divide and conquer, as we’ve seen them do through our history.  Shame on us for not being smarter, more intelligent when it comes to our communications with each other. No need to be concerned about infiltrators, right?  We can easily do the work for them!  All too often we do.  So, with that in mind, let us try harder to have a collective mentoring experience, check egos at the threshold or portal, place on the table what you WILL and see who partakes.  If you heard my theme song:  Brown Baby and listen the words, it will be our own brown and black babies slipping through the cracks of the adults inability to insightfully relate to each other,so the babies will drink from the plenty cup!  FYI, that cups is filled with more than just the materialism of a corrupt capitalistic society or world they/we live in...the ancestors are watching us, they know, we know, so lets do what we know, we can't lose that way, remember, what WE know!

    Culture-Based Mentoring, Making The Most Of Our Children


    I was very happy to discover the statistics below in my Black Seeds calendar upon first opening it.  It was like a sign supporting my need to bring attention to how important a tool mentoring is for OUR people of African decent, we are now called Black People, in a land that does not value us.


    It says that;


    *  Of all Black fourth-graders, 58% are functionally illiterate.


    *  In some cities, 80% of our boys drop out before finishing high school.


    *  Every day 1,000 Black children are arrested.


    *  The number one cause of death for our children is homicide.


    In 1902 and 1903 a group of "educators" met in upstate NY.  Their task was to design a public school curriculum that would control the masses, particularly poor Blacks and prepare them to work for the rich.  Public schools were created as a means of social control and were never meant to uplift Black people.


    In decades past, especially in the period of time before integration, extended families and communities served as mentors to children.  This close relationship led to the transfer of skills and the retention of family values, and history, in a very natural way.


    The public school system had very little in its curriculum about Africans and their contributions, to the development of the world.  So the children were ashamed of their history because all they knew about was slavery and negative sterotypes.


    This was the mind set of the educators in power at the turn of the 20th century. 100+ years later; is their plan still working?  We need to teach the black children and as many black adults as we can possibly reach, how to join a viable PLAN of mentoring each other on an ongoing basis; daily!  Take the Initiative!!!

    Enriching Young Lives Through Coaching and Mentoring

    in Youth

    Vicki Wright, founder and executive director of Transitions Mentoring Ministry is our guest today. Growing up on a farm with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and sports, she found herself majoring in physical education which led to a Masters degree in physical education with an emphasis in administration. After graduating, she became a high school teacher coaching gymnastics, cheerleading, and volley ball. 


    After teaching school, Vicki became the President and owner of Tumble Tots, Inc., a mobile pre-school gymnastics program. Continuing with her passion for the sport of gymnastics, Vicki also coached at Ball State University, North Central High School, Miss Juanita’s Apple Juice Kids Child Care, Jireh Sports Urban Minstry, and Charles A. Tindley Accelerated High School. 


    Many participants in the Transitions Mentoring program were coached by Vicki as young gymnasts. One of Transitions' success "secrets" is that it employs the combination of discipleship tools and mentor-mentee accountability. With a passion for serving the Lord mixed with a passion for serving young people, watching them sprout and grow, Transitions Ministry is the perfect platform for all of this and more to happen. 


    Invite someone you know, a young adult or even someone older, to join you and listen in. Vicki will be taking calls with questions and comments at (646) 716-8344.
