RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (USA)18 October 2011 -- It is dynamic! It is empowering! “Men Of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program” is a dynamic and empowering initiative that is being launched by Richmond, Virginia’s New Deliverance Evangelistic Church (www.ndec.net) under the leadership of BISHOP GERALD O. GLENN , and the organization of MINISTER THOMAS POWELL in observance of 2011 International Men’s Day (www.international-mens-day.com) which is being celebrated in over 50 nations around the world under the theme “Giving Boys The Best Possible Start In Life”. The “Men of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program” will also be the subject of a documentary produced and directed by MRS. ODETTA WRIGHT, the Virginia (USA) Regional Coordinator for 2011 International Men’s Day, actress, playwright, film producer, and Co-Founder of Father Figure Enterprises, LLC (www.fatherfigure.org).

“The ‘Men Of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program’ initiative is designed to give boys and young adolescent males between the ages of 11 through 17 in the City of Richmond the ‘best possible start in life’ through workshops and courses that include, among other things, entrepreneurship, biblical studies, scholastic achievement, leadership, and public speaking. The young men that participate in our initiative will learn, as an example, team building skills – a valuable skill that will help them become better students and an invaluable asset to their communities, their families, and our world. The ‘Men Of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program’ is on a mission to move our boys and young adolescent males – our Sons and the Next Generation of Fathers, Husbands, and Leaders to ‘do more, want more, and be more’. We are very excited about the commencement of the Men of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program “Grand Induction Ceremony” on Wednesday, 19 October 2011 at 7:30 at New Deliverance Evangelistic Church, 1701 Turner Rd, Richmond, VA, and the launch of our initiative on Saturday, 19 November 2011 – International Men’s Day; our participation in 2011 International Men’s Day’ and our partnership with a member of the 2011 International Men’s Day Global Team – Mrs. Odetta Wright, who is the Virginia (USA) Regional Coordinator for 2011 International Men’s Day,” explained Minister Powell.

“ ‘The Men Of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program’ initiative is a powerful concept that will help boys and young adolescent males throughout the City of Richmond mature into spiritually grounded, purpose-driven, successful, and productive adults and its mission is in alignment with the theme of 2011 International Men’s Day – ‘Giving Boys The Best Possible Start In Life’. I am honored that Minister Powell accepted my invitation to participate in 2011 International Men’s Day and that he selected International Men’s Day as the day to launch this initiative which will positively transform the lives of the boys and young adolescent males who participate in the initiative and the communities in which they live. The partnership between ‘The Men Of Tomorrow: Rite of Passage Mentorship Program’ and 2011 International Men’s Day will also result in the production of a documentary film that explores the implementation of an initiative that is being viewed by many as a global model for ‘Giving Boys The Best Possible Start In Life’,” remarked Mrs. Odetta Wright.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
