Women Raising Boys are Invited to Attend a Special Program on April 14

 

Source Program for Raising Boys Alone  On Thursday, April 14, the SOURCE at Red Bank Regional High School is sponsoring an informative program designed for women raising young men alone in our community. “Helpful Hints for Raising Boys” takes place at the Red Bank Resource Network, located at 103 Drs. James Parker Blvd., Red Bank, from 6 to 8 pm. Special Guest speaker will be Matt Stevens, author, educator and motivational speaker. He will be providing all guests with a free autographed copy of his book “Raising Him Alone.” Anyone wishing to attend can contact Sean Macon, RBR clinician and organizer of the program at 732-842-8000, ext. 1436 or email him at smacon@rbrhs.org.

            Mr. Macon states of the goals of the evening, “This day is about demonstrating to mothers/grandmothers how they influence their child’s academic success, goals and future.  It is specifically designed to improve the lives of their male children.  Additionally, we would like to use this program as a platform to promote positive reinforcement with the support of all community stakeholders.”

            Help will be provided in:

●      Finding mentors and managing a mentor relationship

●       Increasing academic achievement with adolescent boys

●      Preparing young men for life after high school -college, military, trade school or vocational service.

 

The SOURCE’s mission is “To remove all obstacles that impede the success of young people in the community.”  This is accomplished by offering services free of charge to students and their families including; individual, group and family counseling, preventative medical and dental care, academic support, scholarship opportunities, and recreational and cultural events.
