Annual Boys & Men of Color Conference

On April 13, 2019, My Brother’s Keeper Durham and North Carolina Central University Male Achievement Center (M.A.C) will kick off its inaugural Boys of Color Conference, a convening of advocates and change-makers, held on the great campus of North Carolina Central University, in the great city  Durham, North Carolina  from 8:30 a.m.-2 pm.

Our theme for 2019 is Boys and Young Men of Color: Re-Dedication to Black Male Achievement. The power of this theme will set the tone for a stirring, productive and engaging convening. We anticipate that the impact of our collective and individual learning will continue the positive momentum in service of boys and young men of color across Durham. This conference will host leaders from the mentoring and responsible fatherhood fields to create collaborations in the  communities. During this event, leaders will share  their expertise, passion, and lessons learned to formulate a community engagement strategy to get more community, school and organizational stakeholders  involved supporting adolescent males of color.

Every aspect of our preparation and programs will be inextricably linked to this year's theme. Details regarding registration is in this link  here. We will be reaching out to a few regarding call for workshop presenters and vendor applications after the agenda has been solidified. If you would like to submit a proposal for presentation, please follow the link here.

 

Please forward this and invite five of your closest friends to join us. If you are looking to sponsor or donate to the cause, feel free to contact us at mybrotherskeeper@dconc.gov

    My Brother’s Keeper Durham set out to get involved with the community. Although the MBK Durham site isn’t hands-on, they have most definitely made it their business to go above and beyond within their service to include just that…being hands on with the community.
