M3 Engagement Symposium
Moving Men, Males, and Mentors Forward

We know that a male present continues to play a vital role in the lives of your children, families, and community. We know we must continue to shape the positive trajectory of our students.

The North Carolina PTA Male Engagement Symposium: Invite educators, parents, and mentors (men and women) from across the state will gather in Durham, North Carolina on May 15, 2020, to network, learn tips, and best practices to educate, engage to ensure the academic, social, and safety success of all children.

Who should attend this symposium? Anyone or any organization that impacts the lives of students should be in attendance. This symposium will promote and uplift male achievement among men and boys. To continuously improve strategies so that families can have better outcomes, we are inviting all SUPER-HEROS!

In addition, research shows that when men are present in schools and involved in children’s lives, negative behavior decreases, student achievement increases and children are better adjusted socially. If you have a Male/Men/Mentor program or desire to create a Male/Men/Mentor program, this is the perfect venue for you, and this conference has diverse attendance from, Male/Men/Mentor Programs Leaders, Educators, Attorneys, Social, and many others.
