Confronted By Authority Workshop in October 4th 2014

The Men’s Fellowship Breakfast forum

Confronting authority Workshop in October: Our hope is to develop solutions that can stop our young men from becoming victims of police brutality. We need to help them implement logic and common sense solutions which focus on proper mannerisms

Topic: Confronting Authority for Young Men: Statistics show that African-American and Hispanic boys are being stopped and searched at an alarming rate—one out of every three stops lead to an arrest. Allegedly, Trayvon Martin was killed because he was wearing a hoody. When a policeman stops a young man it is often a chess game between Police authority and the young man’s mannerism. We will use a discussion on this topic as a mentoring opportunity

Target Audience: 20-30 boys between the ages of 13 and 20

Objective: Offer smart alternatives to confrontation when approached by community authority including:

  1. When, where and how to make a complaint about the action of a   police officer.
  2. Help our young boys fully realize the future benefits of living a crime-free life.
  3. How our dress can lead to us being negatively stereotype that will badly affect the rest of our life.

We are moving deeper into a counter culture

The Men’s Fellowship Breakfast forum.
For those of you who missed our meeting on June 2nd 2014 our discussion leader Rev. Dr. Stanley Gordon Smith opened our discussion with the question, when you hear the word man up what comes to mind? And can Dr. King ‘s beloved community become a reality. After some discussion of Dr. King’s beloved community; he reminded us where we have been as a people. Pastor Smith reminded us of our rich tradition of us being Kings and Queens. Where are we now, we are a people without voices the NAACP, SLC are mute and who is at fault? We are moving deeper into a counter culture with a broken moral compass off. Music, drugs and violence seems to have taken the lead . Where do we need to go, we need to go towards a more Godly and Responsible Man: we need to move into action because there is still cause and problems. How do we get there? We can get there by changing the man in the mirror, renewing our minds – man up – pull out our bootstrap – get to work educating ourselves and the young with whom we come in contact– pass on a legacy – and give a damn !

The Boys & Girls Club of Chester has been a consistent source of opportunity, encouragement, and enjoyment for the children of Chester. One of the main focus points of The Boys & Girls Club of Chester is to supplement the formal school training with tutoring and mentoring. The Boys & Girls Club of Chester have a limited staff of trained and dedicated professionals with many years of service in the Chester Upland School District. The club operates on a relatively small budget while trying to fulfill the needs of Chester’s youth. The Club is designed to be available for any child who wants to take advantage of what the Club has to offer at the cost of $30.00 annual fee. The Club serves boys and girls ranging from 6-18 years of age. The largest age group that it serves is in the age range of 10-14 years with 50% of the summer population are girls and we generally accommodate approximately 90 to 100 faces daily. We were inform that although the club serve a large number of children in the city of Chester most of them can not afford to pay the yearly dues of $30.00 Donna Northern give us a picture of how important financing is the present availability, and the future survival of The Boys & Girls Club of Chester is the development of a stable, reliable, and consistent funding stream for the present and budgeted expenses of the Club.

We hope to be able to capture and maintain the confidence of all those organizations who have recently helped or, who in the future, may want to help The Boys & Girls Club of Chester with outstanding caring and action. The ability of the Club is to generate a consistent, reliable funding stream for both operational expenses and capital projects that will determine just how well the Club will be able to fulfill its desired mission.
