Leadership Mentoring

LMA is a mentoring program that focuses on providing resources and opportunities to males in grades 6-12.

The Leadership and Mentoring Academy (LMA) serves as our one-to-one mentoring program and pairs every mentee with a professional mentor within the Greater Omaha community. Each of our mentors are required to be approved by the organization and complete a mentor orientation and training before being matched with a young man and his family. Among the requirements, we expect each of our mentors to engage and report a minimum of 4 hours a month to help foster as strong a relationship as possible. Mentors and mentees often discuss goal-setting, positive decision making, career exploration, academics, and life as Black men. Mentors provide a positive impact on mentees’ self-esteem, helping them to become the respectful and responsible leaders that aid in their leadership development.
