Race To Equity Summit Oct. 7-8

Registrations are now being accepted for the 2016 My Brother’s Keeper Race to Equity Summit, set for Friday, Oct. 7 and Saturday, Oct. 8 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

Hosted by the My Brother’s Keeper Network of Palm Beach County, the theme for this year’s summit is “Bridging the Opportunity Gap for Boys and Young Men of Color.”

In Palm Beach County, thousands of youth face persistent “opportunity gaps” that prevent them from reaching their potential. This not only affects the individual young people and their families, it also prevents them from contributing fully to the community and the economy, impacting everyone.

In order to successfully compete in today’s global economy, all youth in Palm Beach County must have the opportunity to be safe, healthy, educated and prepared to succeed.

The public is invited to attend the 2016 MBK Race to Equity Summit. To register, and to view the list of available workshops, visit www.pbcgov.com/youthservices. For more information, contact James Green at (561) 242-5702 or ysd-mybrotherskeeper@pbcgov.org.
