Through presentation, hands on activities, and film this workshop will introduce participants to the world of gender support groups, with a focus on young men. Far too often urban young men of color have to navigate the complex world of school, home, and the streets by themselves. Issues like fitting in, self-esteem, trauma, loss, body image and the pressures of life keep many youth from realizing their full potential inside and outside of school. Moreover, school rarely provides a safe space in which young men can talk about the trials and tribulations of growing up.

Participants will experience The Ever Forward Club’s signature workshop, Taking off the Mask, which provides a space for educators to get real about the challenges that they are facing as educators in this work. We believe that there needs to be shift in our educators that will help them deepen their connection to themselves, their teams and the youth they work with.
