I’m excited to be able to share the release of my forthcoming book, Critical Mentoring: A Practical Guide. It will be released with Stylus Publishing in January and is now available for pre-order on Amazon (http://buff.ly/2eJyzdO)! Dr. Bernadette Sanchez of DePaul University, a phenomenal mentoring researcher, was gracious enough to write the foreword. Truly a labor of love, it is a distillation of the lessons young people in YMAN have taught me as I have played the role of mentor. I provide “practical” ways for mentors and youth development organizations to do youth-centric work that liberates rather than marginalizes. Some of our protégés are included on the cover as a true testament to “the work”. I hope this book makes them proud of me!
