Some black professional men will use technology to improve the lives of Philadelphia's young black men. Today the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania announced a $490,000 Knight Foundation grant will power a new e-mentoring program.
In addition to those old-school in-person meetings, participants in the e-mentoring program will use email, chat rooms and computer conference systems.
