On June 11, 2014, join CLASP and their partners for a briefing on investing in boys and young men of color. Hear from young men of promise and the adults who are invested in their educational, employment, and lifelong success.
This briefing will highlight effective practices and policies that can close the gaps in education, employment, and health outcomes for boys and young men of color. It will include speakers from the policy and advocacy fields, as well as panel discussions featuring community leaders and young men themselves.
Far too often, the age-specific needs of this population go unaddressed. Broad issues that impact boys in their teen and young adult years include transitions to manhood, increased financial responsibilities, and connections to education and employment. Additionally, the pressures of concentrated poverty and community violence significantly impact their mental health and wellness.
