A visit to Manhood Development Classes at Oakland Tech

Call and response at beginning and end of Manhood Development Class

Thursday, September 14, members of Aspire and Achieve, 100 Black Men and College Prep visited the AAMA Manhood Development Classes. We were all impressed by the way Mr. Harris engages, encouraged and excited his students. He is emphasizing each student helping all students. He has assigned group leaders and they keep track of everyone's classes and the progress each student is making. We are all excited about the classes and eager to show our support and share our resources.

Keeping track of progress

Thinking critically

Towards the end of each class, our organizations spoke about our support, resources, help and fun available to our Kings. We begin in earnest next week. The space is yet to be determined,  but we are determined to make it work. We ask for prayers and blessing for our Kings and our work. Aspire and Achieve is grateful and honored to be supported by these organizations and we are honored to support their efforts as well.
