March 26, 2012 - PRLog -- DENVER CO, March 26, 2012 – The Center for Multicultural Excellence at the University of Denver will partner with Denver metro area schools to host the 3rd annual Black Male Initiative on Friday, April 6. This year’s theme is "I am the Master of My Fate – Inviting Young Black Males to Lead” will cultivate the leadership potential of young Black male students. The summit will provide participants with the tools to empower and enable their leadership skills by modeling the attributes of successful students and leaders.  
School leaders from across the Denver metro area have been asked to nominate students that have demonstrated strong leadership qualities and personal characteristics. The criteria for selecting applicants include: leadership and academic potential, personal strength, and a desire to participate in a post-secondary education or career readiness program.

Each school can send up to 15 students with a preference for Black males enrolled in the 9th, 10th, and 11th grade level. We will allow students at the 12th grade level to register with a special exception. Students will chose from three tracks: Black Male Development, College Access and Career Readiness, Open Topic.
Participants will engage in a process to prepare and plan for the future. Each student will identify an aspect of his life (school, social, college and career readiness, community, etc.) that he would like to actively work towards improving. The results of this exercise will create positive personal change and enhancement to his academic and/or social achievement. We hope that every participant will leave with a better understanding of what it takes to become a esnqv leader in his personal life, school, and community.
