The Teen Mentorship Program (TMP)
Currently seeking Program Director
- Target mixed race teens in a high school population
- Decrease difficulties associated with multiracial identity development
- Increase awareness of racial prejudice in both monoracial and multiracial populations
- Seminars with high school populations across the Southern California area
The overarching goal of the Teen Mentorship Program (TMP) is to increase racial harmony on high school campuses, as this is a time when adolescents begin exploring their racial identity. The TMP believes there should be a space on a high school campus, like on college campuses, where a mixed race teen would have a space to learn about and explore their mixed race identity.
Teachers and/or principals from high school campuses can invite TMP speakers to their class or school-wide assembly to present information and facilitate dialogue on the mixed race population and racial identity issues. Seminars are conducted in a manner to engage high school age groups, complete with interactive dialogue, activities and games.
*If you are a high school teacher and would like to work with MASC sponsoring a mixed-race club on your high school campus, please specify this in your email. We look forward to hearing from you!
