"Thirty Minutes Thursdays"
This mentoring program is designed for boys to be "coached" one on one with the men who volunteer with EVOLVE. The hour is designed for each boy to have 30 minutes to talk freely and sincerely! We believe we must practice active listening if we are going empower these boys to lead. The final 30 minutes are spent with the coach and the young boy working on goals and solutions. We believe this works to develop better relationships of trust and commitment. Our coaches are encouraged to use anger replacement strategies and utilize principles of Solution Focus therapy to coach our boys through difficulty and despair.
