THE ESSENTIALS TRAINING: A CURRICULUM FOR PEOPLE WHO MENTOR BLACK AND LATINO YOUNG MEN AND BOYS
MOVE MENTORS BEYOND CULTURAL COMPETENCE AND TOWARDS AN INTEGRATION OF CRITICAL CONSCIOUSNESS FOR BOTH THE MENTOR AND THE YOUNG BLACK MEN THAT THEY MENTOR.
Framing & Purpose
The framing of this curriculum is intentional in its focus on young Black men and boys. Even the choice of words, men and boy’s vs males, was done to make it clear that (1) this training is rooted in a specific racial and gender lens, and (2) it is important to recognize the mentee’s humanity by speaking about young Black men and boys using their personhood (“boys and young men”), and not their biological function (“males”). The language throughout the training and curricula thus works to ensure that those who provide the training and receive it are part of the narrative re-shaping that must occur in all mentoring relationships with young Black men and boys. The guiding purpose of the training is to go one step beyond “cultural competence” and strengthen practices of those who mentor young Black men and boys, incorporating voices from practitioners and researchers.
