Simba. As a former Choice youth, Imhotep was one of the panelists at the February 2015 symposium, "Supporting Academic Success of Youth in Juvenile Justice Settings," which was co-hosted by The Choice Program and the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans.

  • Mentors (male only) need to be at least 21 years old
  • The 3 school partners are in close proximity to UMBC:  Beechfield Elementary/Middle School, North Bend Elementary/Middle School, and Rognel Heights Elementary School.

  • There are opportunities to engage in one-on-one mentoring AND group mentoring.  There is flexibility to arrange the one-on-one meetings; all are engaged in the weekend outings.
