Project DADDYMAN 2017 - 5/23/2017 @ 6:30 pm @ Green Run High School

Author Bobby Huntley’s book, Mothers Please, helps single mothers to raise “boys to men” instead of “raising boys to inmates”. Author Eddie Howard, formerly an inactive father and habitual criminal, guides men to successfully re-enter the community and the lives of their children. Coach Elisha “Cadillac” Harris helps teachers, coaches, and other male mentor figures to understand, embrace, and utilize their positions as the “New Fathers”.

On Tuesday 5/23/17 at 6:30 pm Author Rev. Bobby Huntley, Re-entry Specialist Author Eddie Howard, and Coach Cadillac will address young men and their parents during the May session of the Carter G. Leadership Lecture Series held at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach. The session, entitled Project DADDYMAN, is focused on helping Single Mothers, guiding fathers to successfully re-enter the lives of their children, and leading coaches, teachers, and mentors to utilize the fatherly impact that they have on the lives on children.

The Carter G. Leadership Sessions, named in honor of Dr. Carter G. Woodson, are Leadership presentations designed for young men and their parents. The events are sponsored by Green Run's male mentorship club G.M.A.C. (Gentlemen Making A Change), and supported by The Golden Fold, a Virginia Beach male mentorship program. Entertainment by the renowned Step Team, The ICONZ, will round out the event.

The Project DADDYMAN event is tailored for young men and their parent(s) and the event is free and is open to the community. For additional information email seko.varner@vbschools.com or call 757-932-0177.
