Pockets of Hope: A Summit on Protective Practices for Boys of Color in Afterschool
Research tells us that afterschool programs and schools can and must take specific and immediate actions to support boys of color to thrive and be successful in life. In this summit, a panel of policy makers and researchers will share national and city-focused perspectives on why supporting race, ethnic, gender, and academic identity development matters for boys and young men of color. Participants will also hear about the pockets of hope that exist in many afterschool programs directly from the expert practitioners who participated in the intensive Boys of Color in Afterschool Protective Practices Institute – a collaboration between PASE and Dr. Edward Fergus-Arcia, Assistant Professor, Educational Leadership and Policy, NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development. Come prepared to challenge your own beliefs and learn what you can do to support our most vulnerable young people.
