BAB–BOND Young Men of Color Conference
In April 2018, Brothers at Bard held its fourth annual BAB–BOND Young Men of Color Conference. Over the past four years, we have partnered with Brothers On a New Direction (BOND), a brotherhood program based at Thurgood Marshall Academy in Harlem, New York, to host a conference in which our mentees had the chance to connect with young men from New York City who share similar life experiences. The young men participated in a number of large group discussions. BAB mentors spoke about their unique journeys to and through college during a panel focused on empowering the participants to make positive choices in their lives and communities.
