Men to Men: Synergize! Conference is based on Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Effective People which is the foundation of Young Men’s Preparatory Academy, where the initial conference was held in 2010. The speakers infused the theme, synergize into their selected topic discussing how this habit can be applied to the students’ daily lives. Emphasis throughout the conference was on choosing the right team, surrounding themselves with positive influences and how the use that team to reach their goals. This year we added a session entitled, The Conversation. Six men from varying backgrounds discussed impacts and roadblocks encountered and lessons learned through resilience. All the women were asked to leave the sessions during the first conference. The teachers were reluctant. I loved it. This meant the boys were bonding with the men and wanted to discuss sensitive topics. This is evidenced through interviews and written evaluations from the young attendees. We’ve continued to incorporate that format. Wingspan has begun plans to include a sustainability component to the conference.

North Miami Vice-Mayor Alix Desulme sponsored the event and Dr. Steve Gallon III, School Board Member, gave the greetings. Along with our conversation leaders, the Black Affairs Advisory Board, 100 Black Men and Florida Freedom Writers (Precious Symonette, FL Teacher of the Year) were partners.
