Black, Brown and College Bound Summit
At Salem State University, The Brotherhood is focused on academic success and retention, The Brotherhood offers self-identified men of color resources and mentorship to reach academic and achievement goals. The Brotherhood aims to support academic persistence, and connect students directly to faculty/staff resources.
The young men of The Brotherhood are hoping to attend and present at the, 'Black, Brown & College Bound Summit', which will take place in Tampa, FL this coming February. Each year, the goals of the summit are to: provide information about successful strategies, explore mentoring programs that enable the success of young men and provide the latest research of the methods higher education institutions can employ to increase access, persistence, retention and graduation rates with men of color.
We are raising money to help cover costs of all aspects of travelling on this trip, including airplane tickets, hotel stay, food, and registration fees for the conference itself. The students are very excited about this opportunity and professional staff members fully understand the impact it will have on the group, but we need your help to get there.
Please consider supporting us with a donation to this effort, and share this page widely within your networks so that we might reach out to as many potential supporters as possible. We are so appreciative, and promise to share updates and photos from our travels as a way of saying 'Thank You!'
