Additional information

This year, DWS will host weekly online spaces for black boys in middle school. The program strives to prepare young men and masculine identifying individuals for a positive and prosperous future. Our mentors work to build and form positive & beneficial connections with the students and the young black community that surrounds our campus. We engage in meaningful discussions about life, participate in fun games and activities, and offer academic support. This year we have transitioned to an online structure to ensure that meaningful connections between mentors and students can still be made!
