Richard’s Warriors is a mentorship program for young teenage men ages 14-15. We will be assigning a mentor hand-picked by Artistic Director, Richard Lawson, to worthy young men who have the potential and desire to live a successfully-productive life, but do not have the guidance, financial ability or access to the road map to get there. Using Richard’s highly successful and proprietary Professional Development Program (PDP), mentors will be supported through this teaching modality in empowering these young men to fearlessly identify their dreams, and then help gain the clarity, discipline and skill to begin the long arduous journey to get there. We will also focus on nurturing the potential and self-esteem in every young man, while showing them how to give back to their peers without judgment. This is a yearlong program using art to create change.
