Mentoring young men
Sean is an excellent role model for young men who aspire to make a difference while pursuing their dreams. His experience as a collegiate and professional athlete gave him the opportunity to interact with athletes at many levels. He understands the struggles that many young men encounter- some just need a road map to keep them on track while pursuing their life goals. The inspirational messages that Sean provides are very helpful because they are based on his experience as a student and professional athlete. Sean grew up in a situation where he struggled and felt that he had to fight internal and external temptations that many young men are faced with today. Growing up in Miami's diverse community provided Sean with the experience needed as he develops goals necessary for youth from both ends of the social economic spectrum to become successful. He believes in developing and training the most powerful tool that you have.....your MIND, in doing so, anything is possible! There have been success stories that he will share with you in his motivational talks. Through mentoring, he found that when young men use their minds to focus on realizing their dreams, positive things begin to happen. It is like a Love Energy force that makes them want to become better. Sean has a unique ability to guide young men through rites of passage, a path to MANHOOD. Through hard work and patience, Sean has made major strides in making Men out of the young men he worked with. Sean has led groups of young men for over seven years -helped to guide young men from different backgrounds to earn scholarships to college, establish careers, and build a brighter future by setting life goals. Sean is experienced in leading mentoring groups and has trained mentors. He is responsible for opening up the Boston Sankofa chapter, a mentoring group geared towards helping young men find their true identity, as well as the person they aspire to become. Sean has also led diversity trainings for teachers at Boston College. His main goal in the cultural and diversity training was to help teachers reflect on their practices of dealing with students of different ethnic backgrounds. He encouraged teachers to examine barriers that exist in their classroom and gave them strategies that might help them become more effective when they teach culturally diverse students. Apart from training sessions, Sean's experience makes him an effective mentor and trainer for young men who have self- limiting mindsets. He equips young men with a "road map" to success.
