In partnership with Denver metro area schools, the Center is hosting the 4th annual Black Male Initiative Summit (BMIS) on Friday, April 19. This year’s theme is I am the Master of My Fate: Leadership, Education and Black Male Identity, that will serve to cultivate the leadership potential of young Black male students. Our goal is to ensure that every 8th and 9th grade Black male participant leaves with a better understanding of their identity as a Black male and what it takes to become a leader in his personal life, school, and community and inspiring these young men to focus on high academic achievement.
This year, we are also offering an Adult Learner Track for Parents, Adult Educators, School Leaders, Counselors and Community Members. This highly interactive workshop, led by Dr. William Cross and Dr. Frank Tuitt, will provide participants with tools to support Black male students in the development of their Black identity to guide them on their journey to become strong leaders and encourage them to continue their pursuit of excellence.
The Summit will provide participants with the tools to empower and enable their leadership skills by modeling the attributes of successful students and leaders. Dress code is Business Casual for the day. Register to participate in this powerful and exciting event. Space is limited!
