A mentor can have a life-changing impact on a young person, regardless of race.  But an upcoming Indiana Youth Institute-Urban League of Northwest Indiana mentoring workshop will focus on vulnerable black men and boys.

State Senator Eddie Melton (D-Gary) is also co-sponsoring the event.  He will share his thoughts and experiences as a mentor with the two-day workshop on January 27 and 28.  It will be held at the Gary City Life Center, 225 W. 5th Ave.  I talked with him about this event on "Regionally Speaking" on Thursday.  Here's the conversation.
