YouthBuild Mentoring Programs featured in Esquire Magazine

Several YouthBuild Mentoring and DOL YouthBuild SMART programs in targeted cities have been featured in Esquire's The Mentoring Project. The October 2014 print issue of Esquire is dedicated to raising awareness of the need for male mentors. The issue features a directory of youth serving mentoring programs - "89 Ways To Change A Life" - organized by location and interest, featuring several local YouthBuild Programs. Congratulations to YouthBuild Atlanta, YouthBuild Boston, D.R.E.A.M.S. YouthBuild, and LA CAUSA for being a part of this tremendous effort to put the "Men" back into "Mentoring"!

*A note about the Esquire vetting process for inclusion in their directory: Esquire looked at hundreds of organizations and focused on three criteria to arrive at the ones listed throughout their database—reasonable adherence to the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring guide; expert referrals; and potential interest to men.
