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.
