Community organizations plan mentor event today, Wednesday

The Salisbury-Rowan NAACP and other community organizations will have a two-day educational forum starting today.

The forum will start at 7 p.m. today and end at 9 p.m. It will continue at the same time on Wednesday and be at Hall Gym, 1400 West Bank Street.

Salisbury-Rowan NAACP President Scott Teamer said the forum would include an educational documentary with discussion afterward. The program is aimed at males from fifth grade to 12th grade and part of an effort to start a mentorship program, Teamer said.

It’s the second time the NAACP and community organizations have hosted a forum as part of its mentorship program. The first was in February.

“Our vision is to support and empower community organizations and sincere citizens that want to help with the problems we have,” Teamer said. “We know that we have to improve our community mentorship in the area and turn the future of our youth around.”
