He’s working on a new project at the Boys and Girls club called MEN in Action. MEN stands for Mentoring, Educating and Networking. MEN in Action assists young men in Milwaukee, often African-American, by holding weekly sessions with them and identifying obstacles in their lives, then figuring out how to overcome them.
Thomas says, “It’s all about connecting with them and helping them see that no matter what circumstances they come from, they can succeed and we’re here to help them.”
MEN in Action work to understand the specific issues affecting these youth so they can be better prepared to help them. They’re able to point youth in the right direction and get them resources to help themselves and grow into strong role models for the future.
