The Black Training and Enterprise Group (BTEG) wants men, who are part of Britain’s Black Christian community, to become volunteer mentors, after receiving a lottery grant of £362,000 for its Routes2Success Community Role Model Programme.
The mentors will serve as role models, and participate in a range of activities to be held across the UK, which will aim to inspire young Black males (11-25 yrs) to reach their full potential in learning, employment and self-employment.
Jeremy Crook OBE, Director of BTEG, says: “BTEG welcomes and appreciates this Big Lottery grant. It will allow us to help 1,200 young Black males to reach their full potential over the next three years. In these difficult times for young people and small charities like ours, this is great news.”
Brianna Cyrus, Programme Manager at BTEG, told Keep The Faith: “We, at BTEG, understand the barriers that many young Black males face today, both in education and employment. These young men are calling out for successful Black professional males from similar backgrounds to offer them guidance, support and inspiration. We want successful Black males from all faiths and backgrounds and with different experiences to support the Routes2Success programme, and make a difference to the future of young Black males.”
