Young Men Leading In…

young men leading in leadership conference

The Young Men Leading In… leadership conference creates a space for young men to explore lessons on leadership from male community leaders.  The conference sets out to expand the participant’s thinking of leadership going into a new academic year by learning about and discussing leadership qualities within the context of leading in groups (with friends, peers, and teammates), leading in difficult situations, and leading in the home.  Young Men Leading In… is powered by For a Real Change, Inc. in partnership with Boys to Men Leadership Group KY and Light of Chance, Inc.

The date for the next Young Men Leading In has not been set.

Who can participate?

Young Men Leading In… is open to young men entering grades 6 – 12 within the United States.
