Boys to Men Leadership Brunch to Be Held June 3

May 26, 2017

The ninth annual Boys to Men Leadership Brunch will be held on Saturday, June 3 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Putnam Avenue Upper School, 100 Putnam Ave.

Cambridge men and boys are invited to come to this free event to learn about leadership, the health of boys and men of color, and community building.
 
The brunch will feature a panel discussion with men of color who work in law enforcement, education, and health care, as well as an awards ceremony.
 
“The conversation will focus on how boys can make responsible choices, how men can model those behaviors, and how we as a community can eliminate barriers to health for men of color,” said Albert Pless, Jr., Program Manager for the Men’s Health League based at the Cambridge Public Health Department.
 
A number of boys from the Cambridge upper schools are expected to attend the leadership brunch. 
 
“It is important for our young men to gain some insights on what it means to be healthy—educationally, physically, mentally, financially and emotionally,” said Putnam Avenue Upper School Principal Mirko Chardin. “The leadership brunch is an opportunity for our young men to stand in solidarity with each other, develop new relationships, and hear from men and elders in the community who will be sharing their journeys from boyhood to being healthy men.”
 
Due to limited seating, an RSVP is required to attend.  To register, contact Albert Pless at 617-665-3830 or apless@challiance.org.

This event is a collaboration of the Men's Health League (Cambridge Public Health Department), the Men of Color Task Force,  and the Putnam Avenue Upper School. 

The Men’s Health League organizes community events that raise visibility of health issues impacting men and boys of color. This is a Hoops ‘N’ Health affiliated event.
