Boyz 2 Men Education Workshop

Young men of Jacksonville community were inspired and uplifted at the recent Boyz 2 Men event hosted at HollyBrook Homes Apartments on February 27th. The breakout sessions offered practical wisdom – from goal setting to self-care – delivered by positive role models in the community.  Attendants were given the opportunity to speak with prominent males in the surrounding community. The young men gained insight into building healthy relationships and living a purposeful life. The CAN testing unit provided a vital service as well for STD/STI awareness and prevention. By all accounts, the event achieved its aims: celebrating local youth, offering them knowledge and resources for growth, and introducing mentors to guide them. The community clearly came together to support the next generation of leaders.
