Tony's Blog: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that

Tony talks about the current trend toward violent discourse. He suggests that through mentoring we can all learn how to exercise power with love and respect, honoring even those that disagree with us.

Tuesday with Mentor & Mentee-Vickie & Dineisha

Dineisha thanks Vickie for opening up to her and not just listening to her problems but giving her advice and ideas.

From a Mentor
A mentor from the Adams Yabos program, during the Mentee Summit, shared her reaction to listening to the real and honest emotions coming from the youth. She was amazed at the gritty experiences the kids had already endured. She felt priveldged to be a part of this mentoring program. The facilfacilitator Hoolie asked the mentees what it was like to have adults listen to them. The overwhelming response was that it felt awesome, and that it felt new. For one night, mission accomplished.

Rainy weekend ahead, Super Bowl Sunday and thank you Lakers Organization for allowing our kids go to a game.
