Dear COSEBOC friends and followers,
It is at this time of year that we ask you to reconfirm your commitment to the cause we share: the affirmative development of boys and young men of color.
Whenever I begin to question my 15 years of commitment and sacrifice to making a difference in the future of these youth, it seems I receive a message from a young man or his teacher or his family that reaffirms the power that COSEBOC has to support and encourage so many to a life of success.
When I read personal testimonies that describe how a young man’s identity, agency, and voice have been strengthened because of his involvement in our Rite of Passage Program, I say yes, it’s been worth the journey.
When I look over our new edition of the COSEBOC Standards and at the professional development course that arose from it, I know that our work will inform a generation of educators.
When I look back on the virtual programming we coordinated and presented this year to illuminate new strategies for this new world we now live in, I am honored to have been part of it.
Today, I am reaching out to you to help COSEBOC continue our mission. Your Giving Tuesday donation will go a long way to sustaining our efforts. Please click here to contribute on Giving Tuesday or at any other time throughout the holiday season.
As always, I thank you for hearing our message and answering our call. I wish you the best of the holiday season in whichever way you celebrate it!
