Boys to Men New England presents “Voices of Boys and Men,” from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on April 22 at Scullers Jazz Club, in Boston. Proceeds from the concert will benefit this adult-teen mentoring network, creating scholarships for training and allowing the work to reach more boys and men. “Boys need mentorship from healthy, caring, adult men in their lives, and adult men have a place inside where they yearn to mentor,” says board member and organizer Linda Marks. “Boys to Men New England is working to create emotional literacy in boys and men through trainings, community and connection. This work is much needed in communities, schools, families and organizations.”
“Voices of Boys and Men” will feature a variety of performers, including such nationally and regionally acclaimed musicians as singer/songwriter David Roth, father-son duo Jesse and Jack Gauthier, the barbershop group Sounds of Concord, cabaret singer Jay Uhler and hip-hop artist/poet Remon Jourdan. Guest speakers will be present to relay stories about the need for mentorship among boys, and Tina Gao from Magic 106.7FM will act as master of ceremonies. The evening will begin with a silent auction and include a film clip about the work of Boys to Men.
