Brief Program Description

Traditional approaches to increasing achievement and success of young African-American and Hispanic males are not working. We must change the pattern where finishing high school is the exception and prison is almost routine. A panel of expert educators and parents discuss how to raise and educate academically successful African-American and Hispanic males. Come join our town hall meeting on this important topic! This town hall meeting will begin with a panel discussion after which participants will break down into small groups to discuss the panel presentations as well as their particular innovation or invention related to boys of color. Participants may bring with them 50 copies of a one-page summary of their innovation regarding boys of color. Summaries will be discussed and shared at the second half of the town hall meeting.
