Black Male Initiative Summit



The Black Male Initiative Summit (BMIS) provides 8th through 12th grade Black male students with an opportunity to participate in a program that promotes leadership, academic achievement with an emphasis on graduating High School and attending a post-secondary institution, and community involvement while developing their Black male identity. School leaders from across the Denver metro area are asked to nominate students that have demonstrated strong leadership qualities and personal characteristics of excellence. Engaging and interactive workshops are led by Black males who are committed empowering young Black men to be a role model in their school, community, and family.
