The Boy Crisis:

 Why Our Boys are Struggling and What Parents and Educators Can Do About It

 

In developed nations worldwide, boys are falling behind girls in every academic subject, as well as in mental health, physical health, and readiness for college or careers. Why is this happening, and what can be done about it? In this workshop, Dr. Vermelle Greene, founder of a Christian academy for boys and practitioner-advocate for all boys, will introduce participants to the evidence, causes, and solutions to the boy crisis.

This unique workshop provides a dynamic, supportive process for the participants to connect; to listen, share, and build networks of understanding and take action to help address the boy crisis. Using interactive experiences and strategies, this workshop will help parents, teachers, and administrators understand how to motivate boys.
