On Wednesday morning, Victor Cruz spoke on a panel of mentors and mentees moderated by Susan Taylor, Founder & CEO of CARES. The panel included a discussion of the importance of mentors and role models in the lives of young men of color in America. Victor was joined by Boys & Girls Club of Paterson & Passaic member Eddie Cuba, who spoke about Victor’s influence on the community of Paterson. Eddie shared that the Victor Cruz Foundation’s S.T.E.M. programming has led him to want to purse studying IT in college.
The panel was one of many during the 2 day event of the MBK Alliance summit hosted in Oakland, CA. Other special guests included Steph Curry, John Legend and Michael B. Jordan.
