MDP Facilitators Panel
AAMA’s multi-pronged engagement and intervention strategies include:
No human being on this planet has been denied access to the opportunity to live a free and full life as much as African American males.
African American males lead all other groups in high school drop out, rates of incarceration, and early death.
Positive and Productive African American Males in Oakland are in danger of becoming extinct if we do not implement systemic changes to their OUSD reality.
The Manhood Development Program is designed to be a place where African American male students develop the skills and knowledge required to be positive and productive men in their community.
The first objective is to develop the social emotional skills required to navigate life’s obstacles.
The second objective is to learn and embrace African and African American history and to use it to develop a love, appreciation, and respect for being African American.
