Aspire and Achieve Parent - Student Dinner, Along with 100 Black Men and African American Male Achievement

On Wednesday, January 27, Aspire and Achieve had its first Parent - Student Dinner. We were in partnership with 100 Black Men and African American Male Achievement. The Dinner was at Geoffrey's Inner Circle and was hosted, and paid for by owner Geoffrey Pete!

We all had a great time sharing how we all are working to give our African American Male Students resources and support so that they can realize their power and take ownership of their education and succeed. We spoke, listened, mingled and learned from each other. The evening ended with a sense of togetherness and knowledge that we are now working together rather than concurrently. We look forward to building on this dinner and strengthening our work, support and encouragement.
