About the Book

When we think about our youth, we think about the future, their ideas, and their energy. We want the youth to contribute their ideas and energy to create a bright future for society to resolve social issues, to be great leaders, and to make a difference in other people lives. In Empowering Black Youth Through Mentoring, author Abra L Taylor offers a blueprint to assist with guiding today’s youth.
A co-founder of a nonprofit agency that focuses on young Black men, Taylor aims to encourage more Black males to step up and mentor young Black youth. He also seeks to inspire young Black males to strive for greatness and to be productive individuals. Mentoring can be one of their pathways to success, helping them navigate the transition from school to work/entrepreneurship, and from childhood to adulthood.
Empowering Black Youth through Mentoring promotes a positive outlet to educate, encourage, and empower young, Black males transitioning to manhood. It aims to inspire and motivate Black youth to be successful, find their purpose, and create a path that affects generations to come in a positive manner.

Growing up in Turnkey, he was exposed to a lot of things, good and bad. It was a challenge for him because the world had so much to offer. However, he wanted more. He wanted greater, and God gave him an outlet and a mindset to surpass all the various obstacles thrown in his path. With those challenges, that made him thrive to be a successful, Black man. Through his own personal experiences, he wants to be able to offer that same outlet to those around him. He believes it is his responsibility to lead by example and show these young males a better way of life through his character, conversation, and conduct.
