About us: 

    A.M.P. Is a Male Mentoring Program designed for boys age 9 to 15.  The program was Founded in 2011 at Tilden Middle School.  

    Our Executive Director, Mr. Earl Warfield a  retired Public School Police Officer conceived of the idea of men taking an active role in the development of our Boys into young men.

    Mr. Warfield is also a founding member of Al-Maun a community based group of Muslim Men dedicated to doing good in our neighborhoods.  Several members decided to volunteer their time to this noble effort. 

 

The Program:  

   The Members of AMP decided there were five critical areas of development which needed to be addressed. 

1) Life Skills  

2) Critical Thinking

3) Conflict Resolution/Team Building

4) Anger Management

5) Entrepreneurial/Development

 

Purpose: 

    Our purpose is to offer our Mentees options beyond what they may see in their neighborhoods and on the television.  Our hope is to open the hearts and minds of our Mentees to a wide variety of opportunities for personal growth and maturity.

  Through a monthly series of developmental learning Modules.  Our goal is to enhance what our boys receive in the traditional classroom.

 

Modules:  

1) Self Esteem, to develop

    The habit of Respect for self and others.

2) Family Dynamics.  

    To help our  students see their role in their family,      

     by understanding they are not alone and have a                          responsibility to their families.

3) Health and Wellbeing,  The role of nutrition                        

    in building strong bodies and minds.

4) Education and Critical Thinking; the important role                     academic achievement provides in developing responsibility     and maturity.

5) Entrepreneurial/development, this Module connects the           intersection of learning and business skills, through our silk

    screening program and  guest speakers from the business       community.  We sponsor various trips to Museums,                   sporting events and amusement parks, in and outside the         city.      

 

The Goal:

     Al-Maun Male Mentoring Program goal is                                      to provide opportunities for  our young boys and  young            men to resolve issues with out violence.
