ABOUT EVENT: President Obama boldly announced “My Brother’s Keeper” in 2014, an initiative aimed to create opportunities for young boys and men to reach their full potential. On the heels of President Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative launch in 2014, Paul PCS recognized National Charter School Week in conjunction with Teacher Appreciation Week by hosting a two-day event that included workshops for our young boys of color, a community reception, and a forum to seek solutions to this call for action around this critical issue. Paul PCS believes in educating all of our young boys of color through middle and high school in order to prepare them to go to and through college. Paul PCS strives to continue the discourse on this issue. Our goal is to provide a venue and forum to discuss the issues facing young boys of color and the solutions and strategies that work. We will begin with Brother 2 Brother sessions for middle and high school boys to empower them to take action in their own lives. A reception with guest speaker(s) will take place on Friday, May 6th highlighting experts, releasing our research on mentoring and engage the audience in a solutions-oriented discussion to prompt action to support our young boys and men of color. Following the reception, we will invite participants to join us and engage in sustainable efforts to improve the odds for our boys.
Join us in this conversation to address the prevailing issues facing young boys of color in the District of Columbia! Make sure you RSVP by May 5th, 2016 through our Eventbrite registration below:
