This week on Street Beat, Host Syma Chowdhry looks at the work done by groups to mentor our youth.

First William Malcolm discusses the 4th annual “Man of Style and Substance” competition designed to encourage high school seniors to become responsible, respectful, and compassionate adults by emphasizing the importance of education and community involvement.

He will be joined by one of the contestants, Christien Wright.  Then Community Correspondent Ken Bryant finds out about the work done by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit from Antoine Jackson, the Manager of Engagement & Training, as they kick-off their 100 Mentors in 100 Days program.

Next, Community Correspondent Cindy Kainz learns how young women are supported by the American Association of University Women from Janet Watkins, President of the American Association of University Women Michigan branch, and Janie Jones, Communication Director and C.O.O. of Global Initiatives.

Finally, Syma talks with Billy Amen, Director of Operations for HYPE Athletics Community, a non-profit organization designed to give Wayne County area children a positive and constructive outlet through organized sports – free from drugs and violence.
