A BLOC Mentoring Program
A team of BLOC members travels every Friday to Pomona High School & Ganesha High School in Pomona, CA to mentor students. Founded by Martin Barrera PO '13, this program has developed into a momentous initiative in the Pomona Unified School District. Now led by Marcellus CMC '16 & Jaureese Gaines PO '16, members focus on topics including manhood, responsibility, etiquette, goal-setting, and integrity. Our mentors encourage these high school students to step out of their comfort zone and pursue their passions. Using their own recent high school experience as underrepresented students, mentors are able to give mentees valuable advice and apply lessons learned from their own mistakes. This program is an important part of BLOC's mission to create a positive drive for men of color to keep them on a path to achieve their full potential.
Pomona High students visit the Claremont Colleges and get some Pomona College gear to take back with them.
