"ROP affords us as Black men and program mentors the opportunity to showcase the positive influence and
impact we can have on our young men. It fosters an environment where our experiences are leveraged to
mold and shape the future aspirations and outcomes of the next generation. The ultimate measure of
success is seeing former initiates return as mentors to pay it forward!"
