Helping Boys Thrive Summit in Denver, CO was a success! We thank all of our sponsors, our vendors, our speakers and our attendees, the many educators, administrators of education, district leaders, organizational and business leaders and of course the parents!
Check out the visual images from the event:
Parents and professionals today can sense the hunger in boys for innovative parenting and effective education. In nearly every academic and behavioral marker, boys and young men are struggling. While some males get to the top of corporations and government quite well, millions of males are not thriving. In your own community, you may have felt a need to study and positively affect the developmental journey of our boys. In every community, we are seeing more and more boys who need our help, and want us to engage with them in successful ways.
These boys grow up to be young men that are at the highest rate for suicide, depression, and a lack of emotional competence.
Our boys need us now in ways they have never before …
They are being raised in a very complex world and many of their support systems and developmental frameworks have crumbled. As we bring our passionate attention to boys today, and come together to nurture, support, and educate them well, we give a gift not only to them, but to our families, communities, and culture. I hope you will agree that it is time for a coordinated grass roots effort to help our sons. Let’s do this together with summits and outreach that positively alter the cultural landscape for our sons.
