MentorVerse Conversations began as a way to continue the essential discourse of community-building during COVID-19. They have outlasted social distancing and remain a fundamental part of bonding and learning with local partners. June 2022's conversation featured a Breakfast and a Special Conversation about Creating and Sustaining Mentoring Initiatives for Black and Brown Boys. This is a conversation for men creating, growing and managing mentoring programs for Black and Brown young men. Thank you to all of our participants and to Kai Campbell and his team at The Yard in Military Park, Newark.
