Brief Program Description

The most difficult task facing educators in the United States is expanding the focus beyond intervention and prevention programs to conceptualizing and implementing empowerment processes for males. Increasing reading and math scores is not good enough. This session focuses on a systematic approach to addressing the unique needs of males and their families using strategies directed at closing the achievement gap. Moreover, it will provide a framework of understanding to assist in engaging educators in discussions and help all stakeholders share a common purpose for the growth, development, and achievement of males.
