Welcome to COSEBOC

 

If you Registered for the Seattle Gathering of Leaders...

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, COSEBOC and its Seattle partners have cancelled the 2020 Gathering of Leaders. Our staff is working diligently on a limited schedule bringing closure to all administrative tasks associated with the Gathering. We hope to complete these tasks by April 15th. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

 

The COSEBOC Mission

The mission of the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color is to connect, inspire, support and strengthen school leaders dedicated to the social, emotional and academic development of boys and young men of color.

This year, the theme for the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBOC) 14th Annual Gathering of Leaders, Boys and Young Men of Color: Learning from the Footprints of the Past; Taking Footsteps to the Future, has surely made an impact on me. As we approach this year's Gathering in Seattle, I have been thinking about two of my former students, Wendell Holiday and Kevin Johnson. These young black males were 7th and 9th grade students of mine during my early years as a teacher in Philadelphia.

The year 2020 has been designated as the Year of the Mother. The official launch, January 20, 2020, coincided with the national holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I think this declaration is worthy of our attention. COSEBOC is an organization fully devoted to the affirmative social, emotional, cultural, and academic development of boys and young men of color.
