Drawing power from mythological stories and self-disclosure, this award-winning mentoring program transforms teens into community leaders.
Dressed in black shirts with a prominent red and white ring across the chest, they sit in a circle, in a classroom, banging their hands against tilted djembe drums. One would think this group of young men was a Black drumming group, but something larger is happening here. These urban young men are participating in a mentoring program run by Alchemy, Inc, which uses the power of Myth, journaling, and drums to unlock their potential. Although most of the students are Black, and their favored instrument has West African origins, the group is open to any male students at the school. (Alchemy has run programs for girls before and intends to launch new ones soon.)
