Much attention is given to the dropout rates and incarceration rates of African-American teen boys. By comparison, minimal attention has been given to those who have excelled. This workshop will examine the factors that impact these young men’s ability to become engaged by, learn from, and excel in educational institutions. Techniques and programs, both inside and outside of the classroom, that have successfully empowered African-American teen boys to become academically successful will also be identified and explored.

Class size is limited to 45.
