The Wellness Journey with Lynnis Woods-Mullins with guest Ronald M. Barnes, aired February 16th/16
February is Black History Month and in commemoration of Black History month we will be talking to Ron Barnes about the importance of membership in the African American communities as well as all communities for boys and girls.
Ronald M. Barnes is the author of Principles of Manhood as well as the book, Guide To Understanding The Principles of Manhood. The principles cited in these writings have served as the foundation of mentoring programs all over the country. The Boys and Girls Club of America “Menformation” mentoring program in Los Angeles has redirected the lives of hundreds of inner city youth using the Principles of Manhood. These mentor-ship programs have changed and are changing the lives of both males and females all over the country.
Join me and Ron Barnes as we discuss the importance of mentor-ship and why it is an important part of our communities and overall wellness.
