Letter from Executive Director, Ron Walker

Dear educator and advocate,

As we begin another new school year, I hope this letter from COSEBOC finds you excited about the opportunity to inspire great levels of student achievement and success. It is with this in mind that I am writing to encourage you to become a member of COSEBOC.

The mission of the Coalition of Schools is to connect, inspire, support and strengthen school leaders dedicated to the social, emotional and academic development of boys and young men of color. In this regard, our interest is to assist you in your efforts to advance this important agenda. Your decision to join COSEBOC this year will underscore your commitment and resolve to make a difference in the educational lives of all students and in particular for boys and young men of color.

I am pleased to announce that we are launching a new and revised set of member benefits. Specifically, COSEBOC will offer members four (4) Webinars on critically important topics connected to the COSEBOC Standards and education of boys and young men of color.

Members will also receive Bi-Monthly e-blasts that will spotlight upcoming events, essays and research on topics of importance. In addition, we have added a new feature, three (3) Talks with the Executive Director on dates to be determined. We are also intending to launch a Facebook Group network for all members interested in sharing successes and challenges in real time with fellow members.

Further, membership will continue to extend discounts of $125 for school and district members attending the annual Gathering of Leaders, $50 for individual members not affiliated with schools or districts and $500 discount on professional development workshop fees for school and district members.

As you can see, Membership with COSEBOC has its benefits. Please review membership levels and join or renew today.


Ron Walker
Executive Director
