Description

The Project MALES initiative, part of the White House My Brother’s Keeper Initiative, is focused on the goal of enhancing minority male student success at all levels of the educational spectrum.

 

We will be bringing youth together from San Antonio and surrounding areas to develop leadership skills, promote higher education and network with others within the community. The all-day event will begin with registration at 8:30am with the welcome starting at 9am at the UTSA 1604 campus. Participants will be gathering together in a fun and energized setting to develop leadership skills needed to work together and build up their personal and professional assets. Student attendees will participate in team building exercises on the campus rock climbing wall, work with cutting edge visualization technology, and many more activities. Lunch will be provided for participants as well as entrance into the UTSA baseball game.

 

We need male volunteers to assist with engaging with the students during the sessions that start at 9:30am and more importantly during the lunch hour to sit at the tables with the students and share their story with them. Lunch will be provided 12:30pm – 1:45pm. We also need volunteers to attend the UTSA baseball game that follows lunch (2-pm-4pm). Attendance for the whole day is not required but appreciated.

 

The event will be kicked off at the UTSA HEB Ballroom 1 at the UTSA Main campus at 9am. Please let me know if you can attend by Wednesday, 4/27/16, so I can give a final number of plates to the caterer and purchase the baseball tickets. Thank you for your time and support.
