Do For Self with Sadiq Ali

Published on: 12th August, 2020

This episode explores the concept of building for self through the life and work of Sadiq Ali in Baltimore. We discuss his own coming of age story and the work he watched his elders do in the community. We also talk about what it looks like for a community to "do for self" while acknowledging the historical roots of that concept and hoping to be the bridge for the next generation who will need to do the same.

Sadiq Ali, MBA, is a 5 time author, speaker, professor, mentor consultant, social entrepreneur, coach, trainer and supporter of young people. Through his organizations, Maryland MENTOR and Millionaire Manners Academy, every year he speaks to, trains and works with thousands of students, parents, educators, mentors and program leaders who are determined to get more from their work and life.

About the Podcast

Reimagining Youth Work
Exploring how to re-think and re-make systems that serve young people.
The Reimagining Youth Work podcast is an exciting, new, and thoughtful exploration of how our world is impacting young people, what adults can do to re-think their work with young people, and how we can all work together to re-make the systems that serve young people. The podcast is hosted by veteran educator, mentoring expert, and executive director of the Youth Mentoring Action Network (YMAN), Dr. Torie Weiston-Serdan. The podcast is recorded in both audio and video formats.

Like the work of YMAN, the podcast is part of our mission to re-imagine and re-make youth-led and multigenerational spaces in which healthy dialogue, community-engaged education, and civic engagement create equitable environments for youth to thrive.
