Join us on March 8 & 9 for the first annual conference on boys, "Strength, Character and Heart: Our Voices on the Journey to Manhood." The goal for this event is twofold: to explore the issues affecting young men and their education in school and beyond and to create a call for action among leaders for city-wide initiatives to support and develop our youth.
The Conference is the outgrowth of several years of work by a coalition of community partners in the School Climate Subcommittee under the umbrella of the Worcester Mayor and City Manager’s Youth Violence Prevention Initiative. By enhancing our community’s knowledge on how to effectively meet the distinct needs of boys we hope to inform practice and improve educational and life outcomes for our youth. Organizing partners include the Worcester Education Collaborative, the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester, Worcester State University, St. John’s High School, among others.
