COSEBOC Announces New Season of Video Teleconference Series

COSEBOC is excited to announce a new season and new focus to our popular video teleconference series -- COSEBOC Conversations with Deep Thinkers & Doers: Voices of Young Men. This season will feature six monthly episodes with Ron Walker, COSEBOC Executive Director, talking to young men of color about their journeys to manhood and the transformative programs that helped them along those journeys. Episodes will also feature adults who will provide more information about those programs and their work with the young men. Episodes will end with a Q & A sessions involving the audience.  

The first episode will occur on Tuesday, October 8 at 4 pm EST. It will feature Kennan Hudson, a young man went to prison at age 15 and was incarcerated for almost 15 years. He will discuss the educational services and self-development opportunities he accessed in the Pennsylvania prison system and particularly through the Pennypack House School that helped him become a productive citizen when his incarceration ended. He will be joined in this episode by Hilderbrand Pelzer III, an education leader and the former principal of the Pennypack House School. 

As a preview of the new season, this episode will be available for free. The subsequent five episode will be free only to COSEBOC members. Others can register for a fee. Registration entitles you to attend the episode and access a recording of the episode later. To learn more about Kennan Hudson & Hilderbrand Pelzer, click here
