Make Checks/Money Orders payable to: MENTORING MALES TEENS Post Office Box 6756 Columbia, MD 21045 Attn: Mr. Cameron Miles Phone number 410.852.8013 Website: www.mentoringmaleteens.org Email: info@mentoringmaleteens.org • The BRRT neither requests, accepts or receives any funds or compensation from your donations. 100% of your donation goes directly to the needy organization or person we are requesting your support for, in this instance MENTORING MALES TEENS, one of the most successful, continuing mentoring programs in the State of Maryland. About Cameron Miles & Mentoring Male Teens Your donation stays within the community and directly supports the boys. Mentoring Male Teens in the Hood has been changing young lives since 1996. Today we serve young boys, providing opportunities that change lives and create the productive citizens and leaders of tomorrow. During the last 20 years, Cameron Miles has led the Mentoring Male Teens organization providing mentorship, guidance, educational assistance, field trips and life lessons to African American boys age 8-18. Every other Saturday, from 9am-12 noon, Mr. Miles has over 40 boys on the second floor of New Shiloh Baptist Church, 2100 N. Monroe Street, Bmore, MD 22127. You are welcome to stop in and observe. Also, on Tuesdays from 6:00pm-9:00pm, Mr. Miles hosts an open house. We want to ensure the Kings (our boys) can read and write as well as understand mathematical equations. The Kings must believe that they are as good, as bright, as smart, as the next guy and if they work hard, they can be anything they want to be. The Kings must realize that no one owes them anything and no one is going to give them anything and if they do give you something, you will have to pay for it one way or another. Each and every report card they receive with A’s in core subjects is an opportunity for cash rewards. This is used as an incentive to push the Kings for the excellence that already exists inside of them. Speakers from all walks of life and backgrounds (male, female, black, white, and brown) are brought in so young Kings can begin to think about what they may want to do with their lives. We take periodic trips in and out of state to assist the Kings to be exposed and well rounded. Past trips have included Harvard, Howard, and Morehouse Universities, and a youth program in Newark, New Jersey entitled “Street Warriors”. The group has gone on many cultural enhancing trips. Each year in October we go to the Maryland Shock Trauma facility so Kings will see first hand what happens when you pick up a gun in anger and fire it, the damage it does and also the career opportunities offered by one of Maryland’s largest employers. We want every King that comes through this program to know if you work hard, stay in school, do your best in all things, respect your elders and authority, and get exposed to positive people, you have a much better chance of success, staying alive, and out of the penal system. It is also vital to choose the right friends and stay away from drugs, regardless of the monetary payoff. After each meeting, we have lunch so that the Kings receive a well-nourished meal. We ask someone different each month to provide lunch so no one person is over-burdened. We do not have any funding stream so we appreciate donations and ask that all who sign their Kings up for enrollment pay their dues consistently. We attend sporting events, and each year in December we have a holiday party at a local restaurant in the Baltimore area.

The BRRT is a group of volunteers who are willing to provide information referrals, counseling services, educational outreach and other resources to our community especially to our needy families, children, youth adults, seniors and organizations who are deserving of our support. Often our people suffer from lack of knowledge of the various support systems and available resources which could assist them with a problem or situation. Some of us have access to data and organizations that many others in need of do not have access to this information. For lack of knowledge, inspiration, motivation or support far too many of our young people are not in college or in a trade school. Too many of our people live in poverty. Far too many Baltimoreans are among the working poor. Far too many of our families do not have access to affordable housing, affordable healthcare and legal counsel. Far too many single family households headed by women earn less than $10 an hour are among the nation’s working poor. Too many of our people reside in danger zones in Baltimore City. Too many of our families are victimized and subject to policies and procedures that they are not acquainted with yet they are forced to deal with these complicated matters on a daily basis. Bad laws favoring landlords over tenants, employers over employees, businesses over customers, creating stressful and depressing situations for people like losing their homes to water bills, problems in schools, not properly dealing with governmental processes, elected officials and government agencies, not understanding the credit and collections industry, promissory notes, financing rules and regulations and the resulting damage bad credit can cause to a family or an entire generation if not handled correctly. The BRRT is not designed to be another organization. There are no titles, no dues, and no meetings. It will be an online and telephone service created to assist persons in need and to provide assistance to small organizations doing good work while struggling doing it.
