Morgan State University: The Spokesman

During fall 2005, two student groups joined forces to make a positive difference on the most neglected youth of Baltimore City by developing two mentor programs.

Operation Potential refers to itself as a motivational project, and does not require any special training, experience, or commitment for participation. 

The only requirement is a firm conviction that caring is enough to make a difference and a belief in the tremendous potential of all people.

Brother-2-Brother is a mentoring organization with a multi-year presence on campus, a structured, multi-month intensive program working with Baltimore City public schools. 

Members must demonstrate a long-term commitment to serving the organization before they can serve as mentors. 

The mentoring program meets on campus three times a week with all meetings mandatory.
