ZÓCALO AT THE HAMMER: CAN MENTORS SAVE LIVES?

Tuesday, July 19 2011 at 07:00 PM

Hammer Museum, UC Los Angeles

Mentoring programs like Big Brothers and Big Sisters have been highly touted as a way to keep troubled kids off the streets. But can an outsider who has never been homeless or been recruited into a gang actually help a kid who knows those experiences all too well? Human rights activist John Prendergast and author (with Michael Mattocks) of Unlikely Brothers: Our Story of Adventure, Loss, and Redemption, discusses his 25-year relationship with his “little brother” and how a mentorship can change two lives.
