The Third District’s Project Manhood – Fatherhood Initiative and Mentoring Committee shall assist chapters in planning and implementation of all fatherhood initiatives and mentoring programs to include Project Manhood – Youth Academy Program (YAP) and Science Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The committee shall also assist and coordinate the selection of chapters, brothers and others who should be recognized for noteworthy contributions for fatherhood and mentoring. The committee may also recommend projects for the district to complete in support of fatherhood initiatives and mentoring.
The Third District operationalized its commitment by appointing a Fatherhood Initiative and Mentoring Chairman and committee to lead its efforts on fatherhood initiatives and mentoring. The committee consists of a Chairman, Co-Chairmen and a Representative from each chapter. The Committee Chairman is Brother Raymond Bell who also serves on the International Fatherhood Initiative and Mentoring Committee.
Each chapter selects a Fatherhood Initiative and Mentoring Chairman representative to serve on the committee. Committee members can be found here:
