Prophetic Action & Vision for Dismantling the Charity Industrial Complex

What are you doing #ForOurBoys 

If your program, or ministry, or project or mission were to disappear today or a year from now would there have been a deposit in the people of the community that lived on and continued to sustain the unique power of the people you do service with and do your work for? 

If not, then aren't we just keeping people hooked on our services? Shouldn't our intent as interventionist and service providers be to put ourselves out of a job? To ELIMINATE not merely relieve the challenges faced by poor and victimized communities? Justice works dismantles the#CharityIndustrialComplex and ignites the power of our communities.

When Kendrick Lamar dropped the album Damn, the track "Feel" begins by repeating "Ain't nobody praying for me." The fact that our boys and men feel this way is heartbreaking. This workshop unveils how we can reshape the power and strength of our boys to cultivate hope, when throughout life what boys see, and experience destroys optimism. The workshop highlights strategies that help boys remain grounded as mainstream culture attempts to dull and overwhelm their mind, body and soul encouraging rit and arrogance as indicators of mature masculinity. The current crisis of leadership our culture and society are facing demonstrates that traditional patriarch has degraded the integrity of our men, despite it's promise of power. Strategies are contextualized to include understanding how to nurture and protect boys when the pleasures of childhood do not apply to his joy This workshop demonstrates there is a better way.
