2019 COSEBOC Annual Gathering of Leaders

Boys and Young Men of Color: Ready to Learn, Honored to Serve, Destined to Lead

2019 COSEBOC Annual Gathering of Leaders

We are very pleased to announce the date and city for the 13th Annual COSEBOC Gathering of Leaders. It will take place in the great city of Detroit, MI, from May 8-10, 2019. The highly acclaimed Young Men's Passage will convene on these same dates.

Our theme for 2019 is Boys and Young Men of Color: Ready to Learn, Honored to Serve, Destined to Lead. The power of this theme will set the tone for a stirring, productive and engaging convening. I also predict that the impact of our collective and individual learning will continue the positive momentum in service of boys and young men of color across this nation. 

Every aspect of our preparation and programs will be inextricably linked to this year's theme. Details regarding registration, lodging, the call for workshop presenters and vendor applications will be coming soon. Watch for updates here on our website and via email.

This announcement officially launches the 13th Annual COSEBOC Gathering of Leaders. If you have attended a COSEBOC Gathering in the past, I am sure that you share in my excitement about this year's convening. If this is your first opportunity to attend, we welcome and look forward to meeting you.

See you in Detroit!
