With more than 15 years of experience in investing in today’s youth, Blanchard has gained the incredible ability to speak to the hearts and minds of our youth while providing them with the necessary tools needed to leverage obstacles in order to reach success. After serving as the Director of Youth Services for the city of Detroit’s Mayoral Cabinet, Blanchard has stepped down in pursuit of serving youth throughout the nation.
“What Shawn accomplished in less than two years is truly remarkable,” says Mayor Duggan. “Thanks to his leadership, more than 5,000 young people got to experience the pride of having a job and got a glimpse of what their future might look like. I wish him the best of success with his new book and his continued service to Detroit.”
Having spoken to hundreds of audiences about maximizing the promise of mentorship, Shawn is now putting all of his life learned lessons into his upcoming autobiography ‘HOW BOUT THAT FOR A CRACK BABY: KEYS TO MENTORSHIP & SUCCESS’.
HOW BOUT THAT FOR A CRACK BABY is descriptive and prescriptive, as Blanchard uses his amazing life trajectory to inject how to maximize the promise of mentorship —solutions that he has personally employed with great success impacting the lives of youth in Detroit and across the nation.
Shawn’s message is palpable and powerful, “Don’t give up on our youth. People didn’t give up on me”, says Blanchard.
Shawn’s three-phase mentorship process, mentioned in his book, is already helping to transform lives across the country.
