Spring Symposium

Spring Symposium

Spring Symposium brings together educators, school administrators, city officials, board members, families, and community members to discuss and create action plans that address the systems, structures, culture, and conditions that lead to improved educational outcomes for African American boys from Pre-K to 12th grade. Attendees will leave inspired, engaged, empowered, and in community with numerous other leaders in this work.

During this multi-day event, participants will understand the Kingmakers of Oakland model for African American Male Achievement through visiting our school sites to observe our Manhood Development classes in action and have opportunities to speak with students (Kings) and teachers (facilitators) directly. Participants will also learn more about our Culturally Relevant Curriculum (Khepera) and learn practical methods for how to engage with teachers and school leaders in their home districts in support of Black boys.

The Spring Symposium is a convening for school district, nonprofit, philanthropic, and other educational teams that include a combination of students, teachers, principals, staff, administrators, and elected officials.
