The International Colloquium on Black Males in Education (ICBME) Planning Committee invites you to attend this year’s Colloquium Conversations, a forum open to the local community and their families that will be held on Tuesday, October 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Tropicana Community Services’ Centre of Excellence Community Room located at 1385 Huntingwood Drive, Scarborough ON. A light dinner will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The community forum is titled: “I Want My Children to Do Better than Me: Preparing Today’s Youth for Tomorrow’s Workforce Leadership Summit.” The conversation will be led by Dr. Damon A. Williams, one of the world’s leading authorities on youth development and social impact.
This leadership summit is for community members, educators, policy makers, leaders, and parents and their children interested in empowering today’s youth to lead and be productive citizens in tomorrow’s workforce. The session will utilize the methods that Dr. Williams used to rewrite the program portfolio for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, where he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Education Officer for four years.
During this session, participants will gain tools to help youth and teens, particularly young men, in: setting goals, finding their purpose, living with a growth mindset, showing grit and character in the face of challenges, and focusing on developing 21st-century leadership skills.
