2016 Annual Gathering

COSEBOC is excited to announce that our 10th Annual Gathering of Leaders will be held in New York City!  

We are partnering with the NYC Department of Education’s Expanded Success Initiative (ESI) and NYC Mayor’s Office Young Men’s Initiative (YMI) to provide you with the most exciting, comprehensive, and invigorating Gathering of Leaders ever!

New York City is one of the country’s most diverse cities, its most populous, and has been called the financial and cultural capital of the world. Among the wealth of resources that are exclusive to New York City, there are three in particular which align seamlessly to the work of COSEBOC and will combine to create a truly powerful experience for participants of the 2016 Gathering:

  1. The size and cultural diversity within the New York City public school system;
  2. The work of the Expanded Success Initiative and the overarching Young Men’s Initiative and partner organizations working within schools; and
  3. Access to New York’s world-class colleges and universities, which range from community colleges to four-year universities.

The Gathering of Leaders in NYC represents a celebration of the decade of work that COSEBOC has been doing as the only national education organization of practitioners solely focused on promoting the educational success of boys and young men of color. Since its inception, the mission of COSEBOC is to connect, inspire, support and strengthen school leaders dedicated to the social, emotional and academic development of boys and young men of color.   

To commemorate our 10th anniversary, we will be adding new components to the Gathering that will enrich your experience. We will also feature some special members-only activities, so please consider becoming a member today!

  • Registration, with discounts for members and early registrants
