Chicago State University’s new African-American Male Resource Center will hold a one-day conference April 24, “Continuing the Journey: High School and Beyond,” for more than 200 Black male Chicagoland high school students.

The resource center will focus on attracting and retaining Black males in colleges and universities. The conference will help the students learn more about college and career preparation, and dressing for success.

Lance Williams, founder of the Know Thyself Program, Inc., will be a featured speaker, and members of the Coalition of African-American Leaders and the Chicago chapter of 100 Black Men will serve as mentors throughout the year.

“What sets this program apart are its holistic approach and hands-on involvement of partners and volunteers,” said Romi Lowe, the university’s executive director of Enrollment Services and chair of the conference.
