It has become apparent to us that there are qualified men in the community who have it in their hearts to become part of a solution for boys who need positive male leadership, but who just couldn't make it to our October 16th 2013 Gathering of the Silverback Society at LeMusee. Well its still not too late to join our effort. Our work in the schools begins the week after Thanksgiving, so there is still time to sign up to work with a Silverback Society mentoring team at one of our seven partner schools this year.
We also want you to know that our program is designed to be feasible for the kind of busy, sucessful men who are the best examples of personal achievement and personal responsibility our community has to offer, and who may have children of their own (we never use a man's family time).
Some important features of the Silverback Society mentor commitment
We understand that our men are already stepping above personal responsibility and accepting responsibility in the village, so in addition to the above, our policy is "we will not ask one more thing" of our men, except perhaps to represent us at a public event once in a while.We will not share your contact information with other agencies or organizations.
So, if you are a man who feels good about what you have been able accomplish so far in your life for yourself or your family, please consider helping make this city a better place for us all by adding your leadership to the development of our future, the next generation of men.
Perhaps you cannot participate as a mentor in the Silverback Society, but still know the critical importance of this work to the future peace and prosperity of New Orleans. As noted above, Silverback Society, Inc provides coordination and for all the financial requirements around these volunteer's work with our boys.
