About the EMBODI forum
The EMBODI forum is for African American males ages 12 – 18, and is focused on addressing the societal plights they may face by cultivating a personal vision for their lives, providing tools to attain a higher quality of life through educational opportunities, and to create service-conscious young men.
The EMBODI Forum is a FREE one-day event, open to the public and facilitated in partnership with concerned African American community male leaders that share in the vision of bringing meaningful programs that foster sincere opportunities to discuss issues of importance with our youth. A continental breakfast and lunch are also included free of charge.
African American male mentors will lead interesting and interactive discussions leaving participants with a deeper understanding on ways to build their personal brand, explore career options, increase their financial literacy, and give back to the community.
The April 18th forum will be the fifth EMBODI forum for our organization, and every past forum has been very well-received by participants and mentors.
How you can help our publicity efforts:
- Print and post the forum flier in your school, church or community organization if there is an event bulletin board on which you are able to post.
- Forward this email to those in your network who may be interested in attending the forum. Encourage students to register for the forum using the participant registration link.
- Forward this email to those in your network who may be interested in being mentors for the forum. Encourage them to register for the forum using the volunteer registration link.
We would greatly appreciate any help you can provide to inform African American male students, their parents and African American male volunteers about our organization's EMBODI programming in the Twin Cities. Thank you in advance for your support!
