  • Male Empowerment: Tying into Manhood

    On Thursday, May 4th, more than 300 students from local high schools will gather at Monroe College’s Bronx campus for the school’s 8th Annual Male Empowerment Event. This year’s theme is Tying into Manhood, inspiring young men to show their commitment to success, both inside and out. Students will be matched with working professionals to discuss important subjects such as developing good character, the value of education and community service, and relationships and fatherhood.

    Monroe College launched Male Empowerment in 2010 to address the growing drop-out rate among Latino and African American male youth. Since the first event, over 2,000 young men have attended the Male Empowerment seminars, and over 300 mentors have volunteered their time and effort to supporting these events.
