The inaugural conference — free of cost to attendees — was held last year at Santa Monica College.A collaborative project between Santa Monica College, El Camino College, Long Beach City College, Compton College, and Pasadena City College, the event’s theme, “A Holistic Approach to Healing Men of Color,” was designed to promote wellness, while giving attendees strategies for empowerment, ideas for positive social change, and an opportunity to network with other men of color.“This conference gave me the gift of learning about my inner strengths and qualities,” said SMC student Joshua Barsky. “The day was meaningful for the valuable time that so many educational leaders and professionals set aside just to spend with us . . . to help us develop and advance our own professionalism.”This is the first such free-of-charge conference targeted to create a social network and provide role models for male students of color. In addition to about 100 colleges and community members, 150 students from SMC; El Camino College; East Los Angeles College; Long Beach City College; Compton College; LA Trade Tech College; Southwest College; Norco College; the University of Southern California; and USC attended.For more information on SMC’s academic and student support programs Adelante and Black Collegians—both of which mark 30 years of existence this year—visit smc.edu/LatinoCenter and smc.edu/BlackCollegians.Submitted by Grace Smith, Public Information OfficerTags :A Holistic Approach to Healing Men of ColorAdelante and Black Collegiansel camino collegeSanta Monica CollegeSecond Annual Men of Color Leadership Conferenceshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentCrime Watch – Scooting while drunkConsultant recommends policies to prevent sexual abuse in city youth programsYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press18 hours agolast_img read more
