Charlie was recently invited to share his story with members of West Angeles Community Development Corporation’s Manhood 101 Program, designed to prepare our next generation of young men to reach their full potential and achieve success for themselves, their family and our community at-large.
The Manhood 101 program emerged to meet the immediate needs of the young men in the South Los Angeles area. Young men need a safe space to ask questions, seek answers and be exposed to meaningful information as they navigate toward manhood. Most importantly, young men need to be exposed to potential mentors who have faced similarly perceived insurmountable odds and achieved despite their circumstances. We recognize that our youth confront various issues daily and need tools to help them combat academic, social, emotional and economic barriers to success.
