CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The West Boulevard Neighborhood Coalition in Charlotte is looking for male mentors to help cultivate the next crop of community leaders.
The Coalition’s “Seeds for Change” community garden and market provides jobs to teenagers, educational opportunities, and fresh food to one of the city's most disadvantaged communities.
Seeds for Change wants to add a mentorship feature.
Young adults with mentors are more likely to go to college, less likely to use drugs, and more likely to hold leadership positions.
“Because what we’re doing is making a difference in the children's lives, which is going to make a difference in all our lives,” organizer Brenda Campbell says.
Anyone hoping to sign up for the male mentorship program can apply here.
Seeds For Change sells fresh fruit and vegetables from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 2157 West Blvd Charlotte N.C. 28208.
