Tod Teen Republic, a youth focused non-governmental agency launched its flagship project; Junior Boys Mentoring Conference in a lovely event last Thursday at the UDS Guest House in Accra.
Tod Teen Republic is a youth focused non-governmental agency with a vision of empowering and equipping the younger generation with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them tackle challenges as they come into contact with the outside world.
In attendance were experienced father figures such as Dr. CJ Buckman, Rev Albert Ocran and Mr. Richard Luther King who delivered insightful speeches about fatherhood.
The CEO of Tod Teen Republic, Mrs. Ethel Marfo in her speech said boys eventually grow into men and serve as an indispensable part of a healthy family.
“Healthy families create robust communities that serves as the foundation for the ever advancement and improvement of the society,”she said.
She urged the audience gathered to become one and join hands to with one accord rise to ensure that mentoring is no longer a privilege but a necessity for boys in preparing them for the future.
On 7th November 2015, the premier Junior Boys Mentoring Conference would gather selected young boys from schools, orphanages and single parent homes under one umbrella on to discuss challenges and issues boys encounter as they approach manhood.
Dedicated and exemplified faith based fathers themed as Super–Dads will offer fatherly advice and mentoring for participants.
The boys will also be exposed to practical life skills such as cooking, tailoring, gardening, home décor as well the presence of professional role models to inspire them.
The Junior Boys Mentoring Conference is going to be an annual event and hopefully a boot camp from next year.
It seeks to constantly be in touch with boys by forming Junior Boys Clubs in the basic schools.
