Greetings COSEBOC family, friends and colleagues,
On April 25-27, 2013, the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color will present the 7th Annual Gathering of Leaders. The College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago will serve as our host. COSEBOC thanks Professor Alfred Tatum and key university administrators for their willingness to host the event. We are equally pleased to announce that the Urban Prep Academies will host site visits of Gathering participants and host our 2nd Annual Male Students Gathering. The theme for the adult and student gatherings is the same, Young, Gifted and Literate: Prepared Boys and Young Men for the Future. It is our expectation to move from imagining the scenario above to understanding how to make it happen. The gathering will convene Award winning schools, passionate presenters, authentic and relevant speakers and committed educational leaders and advocates for the expressed purpose of making the dream of success for our boys and young men a reality.
Plan to join us for this historic opportunity to learn from others who are creating innovative, proven, and replicable strategies that demonstrate that boys and young men of color are capable of world class accomplishments. Be prepared to engage in meaningful, engaging and hands on experiences. Registration is officially open today. Don’t delay. The Gathering will reach capacity quickly. We will keep you updated as we continue to build a strong and robust program agenda.
In closing, please consider becoming a COSEBOC member and become eligible for the Gathering membership discount. Join the movement!
See you in Chicago,
