Video-Teleconference: Ariel Jimenez Bustos and Martin Miranda

On Tuesday, January 4, 2020 at 4pm EST, COSEBOC is proud to announce Ariel Jimenez Bustos, Coordinator for the National Compadres Network’s Joven Noble Youth Academy, as our 4th speaker in our 2020 educational teleconference series, Conversations with Deep Thinkers. Ariel will be joined by Martin Miranda, a Joven Noble Youth Academy participant.

Conversations with Deep Thinkers is a powerful forum for learning and inquiry. In these one-hour teleconference calls, Ron Walker engages prominent leaders in an inquiry that is focused on COSEBOC's 2020 theme: Boys of Color: Learning from the Footprints of the Past, Taking Footsteps to the Future. These conversations are followed by a Q&A inviting audience participation. The goal of this series is to create, deepen and strengthen the capacity of educators and advocates dedicated to the affirmative development of boys and young men of color.
