Young African American Males Conference

Connectivity: Leveraging Brotherhood to Achieve Excellence in Education and Beyond.

On February 9th, MPYD took students to an exhilarating experience at the 15th Annual Young African American Male Conference at Pasadena City College (PCC).

Promising a day of inspiration and brotherhood, “The purpose of this conference is to utilize intentionally crafted workshops as a space to engage in conversation with our young black males to equip them with the resources and hone skills to advocate for themselves,” the organizers of the event said on the PCC website.

“The workshops include topics ranging from financial literacy to mental health to provide a variety of resources to support the students holistically in their journey in higher education.” 

The students arrived at MPYD in the morning and were greeted with breakfast burritos sponsored by Lucky Boy's in Pasadena, CA. After breakfast, the students boarded MPYD's private transportation and headed over to PCC. There, the young men immersed themselves in workshops, forged powerful mentor connections, engaged in exciting games, snagged awesome prizes and free merchandize, in addition to enjoying a mouthwatering lunch from In-N-Out burger.


After the conference, on the journey home, MPYD conversed with the students on their experience at the conference which was greeted with positive feedback from the young men feeling more empowered and motivated in their pursuit for higher education.
