Voluntary Segregation
What is it???
Currently known as "self-segregation" and is the separation of a religious or ethnic group from the rest of society in a state by the group itself. Through auto-segregation, the members of the separate group can establish their own services, and maintain their own traditions and customs.” This is a very broad definition that can encompass the many different groups associated with self-segregation.
Voluntary Segregation
-Religious Affiliation Schools
Helpful or Hurtful
voluntary segregation stems from segregation could it be hurtful???
Some say that it does not matter (same race mentoring)
Some evidence can prove otherwise (i.e HBCUs/Dunbar School)
Same Race Mentoring
same race and cross race likely to form strong relationships
yet some mentors concerned about cultural differences
Same race more likely to drink alcohol and also feel more competent in school than cross-race.
race was not a central factor in whether or not
the mentor and youth formed a strong relationship.
