Description

EAF postponed the Eagle Institute 2017 Professional Development Conference, originally scheduled for March 14, 2017, due to severe weather. The event has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 11, 2017.

The Eagle Institute empowers school leaders, educators, and support staff nationwide with job-embedded training and coaching services grounded in the Eagle Model’s proven practices for effectively engaging young men of color to realize their full potential.

Join us for a dynamic professional development conference where we will endeavor beyond the well-known crisis rhetoric to share Eagle’s approach including practical tools and strategies which participating educators and practitioners can apply immediately.
