Black Boys & Men Symposium - 2022 Registration
Grand Valley State University seeks to bring together youth service providers, K-12 educators, higher education faculty and staff, and community leaders to understand and interrogate the “systems” that impact the lives of Black boys & men in order to deconstruct and rebuild for their success.
Through a lens of intersectionality, the Black Boys & Men Symposium looks holistically at the lives of Black boys & men in a variety of educational and other contexts. The symposium is focused on creating a vision for equitable transformation throughout the educational pipeline, from K-12 to higher education and beyond. The symposium is designed to be a place of personal and professional growth for those who walk alongside Black boys & men to engage in discussion, learning and action.
As you register for the conference, please note that the Sneaker Ball is included! You do not need to register separately for this. However, details can be found here.
We are offering a special student rate. Should you want to bring K-12 youth, please contact us at [email protected].
Students may attend all aspects of the symposium sessions with the exception of the Sneaker Ball (as this is an adult-only event). Specific sessions that may especially appeal to students will be noted on the symposium schedule. All students attending the symposium must be accompanied by an adult chaperone as this needs to be noted on the registration.
