Press Release Summary: Celebrity Youth Mentoring Session Features CNN News Anchor,
Don Lemon & Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show Host, Warren Ballentine

Press Release Body: (ATLANTA, GA) - Today\'s youth are crying out for guidance, love
and mentoring. Watch any television news station and it\'s peppered with violent
crimes from the previous night featuring our young people - particularly
African-American and Latino youth. In an effort to respond to such a cry, Teach One
Academy will host a celebrity youth mentoring session on Monday, July 28th from
5:30pm - 8:30pm for male youths ages 13 - 21 in metro-Atlanta. Featured celebrity
panelists include, Don Lemon, CNN news anchor, Warren Ballentine, nationally
syndicated radio talk show host of The Warren Ballentine Show, Tyreal Lewis, CEO of
The R Group and Real Street Kids Foundation, Joseph B. Washington, author of
\"Breaking The Spirit of Average\", Jay White, CEO of Fishers of Men Productions LLC,
Hotep, CEO of Hustle University (currently hosted at Morehouse College) and a
special presentation by one of Atlanta\'s Hip-Hop music moguls. The event will be
held in an undisclosed location. All youths must register online to participate in
this free program.
"Do You Know Thyself?" forum is themed to motivate youths to let their voices be
heard and to hear from some of today\'s most influential role models. The mentoring
session is the first of four series. The focus of the discussion will be on three
specific defining attributes of manhood: 1) Self-Image; 2) Self-Perception; 3)
Self-Identity. Jennifer Toussaint, Executive Director of Teach One Academy shares,
"The forum will serve as an impetus to open the line of communication among
teenagers and their peers, in addition to the influential role models. The idea is
to empower the young men to discuss topics they are not able to discuss with their
parents and at times their peers."
Teach One Academy is now accepting applications for their "Be A Visionary Mentoring
program for the fall. For information, contact Jennifer Toussaint at 678-215-3475.
