Dominque and Bashi, AFSC staff, present a certificate to Thomas-Bey at his graduation ceremony.
On June 4, 2008, ten men graduated from the Friend of A Friend mentoring project at the Maryland Correctional Training Center (MCTC) in Hagerstown. The project is sponsored by the Middle Atlantic Region’s Maryland Peace with Justice Program. For six months, mentors train their mentees in conflict resolution and ways to avoid violence, crucial skills in their environment. Both mentors and mentees are prisoners at MCTC. The men meet in three-hour sessions on Wednesday nights while mentees also meet regularly with mentors individually.
