Paul PCS Presents “My Brother’s Keeper…
Responding to the Call” Public Forum and Workshops
Today, Thursday, May 8th 5:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Paul PCS – Auditorium 5800 8th Street, NW
On the heels of President Barack Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative launch, Paul PCS recognizes National Charter Schools Week and Teacher Appreciation Week by hosting a forum on 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 major goal is to provide a venue and forum to discuss the issues facing young boys of color and the solutions and strategies that work.
This one-day event will begin with workshops for middle and high school boys to empower them to take action in their own lives. A community forum will follow the workshops, highlighting experts and activists who will engage the audience in a solutions-oriented discussion to prompt action to support our young boys and men of color. Following the forum, we will invite participants to join us and engage in sustainable efforts to improve the odds for our boys.
