The Oakland Chapter of the Campaign for Black Male Achievement Fellowship Program is organizing the Building Beloved Community Through The Young Men Conference taking place on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
I’m proud to be a member of the inaugural class of CBMA Fellows Oakland and involved in this conference to provide young Black males with tools to help them realize personal and professional growth when faced with life challenges, as well as provide them with a safe space to have identity affirming experiences not typically shared in school curriculum.
At this conference, attendees will be able to attend two out of a total four workshops tailored towards the following: 1) insecurities and defining one’s self, 2) tools for dealing with trauma & loss, 3) the intersection of sports and STEM fields, 4) and the role that media and mass incarceration can play on black communities.
This conference is geared towards young Black men in grades 6-12 who are interested in exploring these topics among a beloved community. We invite students and volunteers to register on our Eventbrite where more details about the event are located.
If you know of any students matching this demographic who would be interested in participating, please share this them so that they can register. Thanks so much for all your support!
