2023 Giving Tuesday: Join the Movement

Dear COSEBOC Colleagues and Friends,

On this #GivingTuesday, we extend heartfelt thanks to each of you who have been a part of our mission to support and strengthen school and community leaders who are dedicated to the affirmative social, emotional, cultural, and academic development of boys and young men of color.

A few months ago, we announced that we are in transition as Ron Walker moves into his next life chapter and COSEBOC seeks a new home to continue its profound work of serving boys and young men of color. During this time the work continues as we have successfully added 3 new professional development courses to our portfolio of offerings and are delivering on a number of services and partnerships with school districts large and small.  A few mentions:

  • 92% of all participants rated the quality of COSEBOC courses as high.

  • 100% agreed that they plan to use the COSEBOC Standards to inform their efforts to improve the education for
    all students in my school or district, particularly students of color.

  • 85% reported that the D.R.U.M. course had a significant impact on their capacity to support greater success in school
    by young people.

Your generous support is needed now more than ever to continue the impactful work even as we contemplate our new home. It is even more important that we remain strong and continue to prove that we can positively impact the lives of boys and young men of color by providing transformative educational tools to all who serve them especially in our new home. Our young boys and men are counting on us.

We thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity. We could not do this work without your partnership and support.

Sincerely,
Olga Acosta Price
Chair of the Board, COSEBOC
