Passport to Manhood Summits

In 2016, we began the work  “Passport to Manhood” Social Media Leadership Summits here in Washington, D.C. and in New York City for high school students living in poor and disadvantaged neighborhoods. Specific goals of each summit are to reinforce the following principals: leadership, decision making, conflict resolution and time management via a social media lens.  The Summits also seeks to acquaint youth with positive best practices for social media, increase employability via social media, and to give youth tips on how to advocate for community resources via social media.


We are always looking to maximize impact and partnering with groups like yours is a great way to do this.  Below are some of our current and former partners.  Please let us know via email if you have an opportunity or are interested in partnering with us on one of our initiatives or summits.
