Dear COSEBOC Friends and Colleagues,
The Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBOC), a national organization dedicated to re-imagining and transforming schooling for boys and young men of color, is hosting an event for faith, educational, and community leaders on June 11, 2011.
Participants will hear from national and local leaders active in the cause to ensure successful outcomes for our boys and young men. We will be joined by two special guests from the highly regarded Eagle Academy for Young Men in New York; David Banks, Executive Director, and Jonathan Foy, Principal. Both will share why it is critically important to monitor the educationa of boys and young men of color regardless of school design (co-educational, single gender, private, charter, faith-based).
Woven throughout the conversations will be the unrelenting belief that this student population must be provided with the highest quality of academic, social, moral, and civic opportunities in order to prepare them for positions of leadership at all levels.
