Cullen J. Davis Young Men of Color Symposium

Saturday, May 1 | 10 a.m.–1:30 p.m.
Registration Deadline: Friday, April 30

The Young Men of Color Symposium hosted by Francis W. Parker School is a leadership conference for self-identified men of color who attend independent schools in 6th–12th grades.
 
The day will feature opportunities for participants to explore their multiple identities and learn skills geared towards self-advocacy and community building. The goal of the event is to empower students to effect positive change in their lives and their communities, using newly acquired language and knowledge. Additionally, adult participants will attend workshops designed to help them critically examine how to create and sustain courageous, safe spaces within their school and beyond to effectively serve young self-identified men of color.
