Focusing on 5th grade boys, the Winter Man Up! Symposium will help prepare boys for their tween years by teaching them about personal responsibility, community activism, and defining manhood. Hosted by Mickey Leland College Preparatory Academy for Young Men, the event will also present the pursuit of a college degree as a viable opportunity that boys should consider and prepare for now.
The symposium will also host a mother’s component focusing on equipping mother’s with resources and information that can help them help their sons as the boys transition into manhood.
Students will be bussed from local elementary schools for this school day event.
