EO Men’s Mentoring Project


Through an anti-racist and equity-focused lens, the EO Men’s Mentoring Project supports young men in our community who arrived to the US as refugees. Opportunities are provided to mentees, and mentors, to connect culturally, build social capital, and discover pathways that promote upward mobility. Together, supportive mentoring relationships and programming initiatives focus on addressing inequities and disparities while building on the resilience and strengths of these young men – empowering them to dream big and reach their goals.

With a focus on personal growth and exploration, the development of hard and soft employability skills, career and trades exploration opportunities, and the attainment of tools for great financial stability, the EO Men’s Mentoring Project prepares mentees for the next chapter of their lives and beyond.
