Hofstra University NAACP Presents TheBlackManCan Institute in Long Island

Brandon Frame, Visionary of TheBlackManCan Partners with Long Island branch of NAACP to Empower Young Black Males

Hofstra University NAACP welcome The BlackManCan
PRLog - March 28, 2014 - LONG ISLAND, N.Y. -- TheBlackManCan Institute (http://tbmcinstitute.theblackmancan.org/) (TBMCI) which launched in the Sprin of 2013 by Educator, Youth Advocate and Author, Brandon Frame, ("Define Yourself Redefine The World: A Guided Book for Black Boys and Men") is headed to Long Island at Hofstra University in partnership with the NAACP to host an institute on Saturday, April 19th from 8:30am - 3:30pm, continuing its mission to uplift, empower, educate and motivate young men of color. Parents and teachers can register boys in grades 6 - 12 for free by visitinghttp://tbmcinstitute.theblackmancan.org/ (http://tbmcinstitute.theblackmancan.org/).

The tour kicked off at American University in Washington D.C. in February followed by a stop in Memphis, Tennessee at Juvenile Initiative and Faith-based Follow-up (JIFF), a program for boys ages 12 - 18 that provides youth from the juvenile justice system with the skills, support and direction necessary to break the destructive cycle of criminal behavior.

In light of President Obama’s newest initiative, “My Brother’s Keeper”, TheBlackManCan Institute dedicates efforts to all youth who have died to gun violence honoring the lives of youth such as Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis. Brandon shares one of the core competencies missing in the lives of young men of color is lack of access to a model of consistency, a component necessary to achieve solid success that he hopes President Obama’s new initiative will highlight.
He explains, "Young men right now do not know what it means to be consistent because many of them don't have a model of that. He continues, "It starts while they are in school, in the home and as they get older it will manifest in relationships with family, friends, and women, too. The ability to be consistent is the making of a man.”

Frame along with community leaders and educators provide half-day workshops helping young boys foster brotherhood. Malik S. Champlain, CEO of Passion, Hunger, Drive is a motivational speaker, educator and youth activist that will serve as the keynote.  Boys of Color attending TheBlackManCan Institute will be exposed to cultural and global perspectives that includes powerful workshops, interactive activities and an ending ceremony that includes a pledge to brotherhood where boys look one another in the eyes and profess to be ‘their brother’s keeper’.

All young men attending the Institute will receive ties and a copy of Brandon’s debut title,Define Yourself, Redefine the World: A Guided Journal for Black Boys and Men (http://theblackmancan.org/), which is now available at Baltimore City College curriculum for their African-American men’s program and is being used as a therapeutic starting point for empowerment, self-love, and forward progress for young males.

Presenting sponsors of TheBlackManCan Institute Spring Tour include: Make Music Count, Shady Hill School, Cause Driven, Community Serivce, Inc., NAACP Hofstra University, Justice Sweets and T.MORRISON AGENCY.
