Brothers take GEES mentors to the Reginald Lewis Museum
Brothers Andre Dillard, Marrell Harden and Jamar Turner took eight young black males from Georgetown East Elementary School (GEES) to the Reginald Lewis Museum in Baltimore, MD. After the museum visit we had lunch at Chick-fil-a and Chipotle. The young men had a great time! These young scholars are part of the GEES Black Male Mentor Program. In addition to Brother Dillard (GEES principal), Brothers Marrell Harden, James Henson, Tye Gillins and Clarence Edmond serve as mentors to the young men and come to the school once a week for one on one mentoring sessions. There are several other trips and activities planned for the mentees over the next couple of months including a trip to the local bowling alley, a visit from a game truck, and a charter boat fishing trip on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Programs like these are crucial in supporting young black males and helping them thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. By providing them with positive role models, engaging activities, and unique experiences, the program is helping to empower these young scholars and set them on a path for success. Kudos to Brothers Dillard, Harden, Henson, Gillins, Edmond, and Turner for their dedication to mentoring and making a positive impact in the lives of these young men.
