Transforming Boys to Men - 5:12
with Wayne Lynn of The Turning Point of Lansing
Posted Jun 05, 2017
The Turning Point of Lansing provides African American males in grades 7 through 12 with an Afrocentric group mentoring experience. With the many seminars and workshops that the program offers, several key issues are addressed, such as education, relationships, health, communication skills, professionalism, financial responsibility, and sexual responsibility. These seminars and workshops allow young men to become more aware of their role in society, their responsibility as men, and how they can start making their societal impact immediately. The culmination of the program's annual activities is a Rites of Passage ceremony, where graduating seniors are recognized. The ceremony is also symbolic of the graduating seniors moving into manhood. Visit The Turning Point of Lansing online. Interview recorded May 25, 2017.
