Ashanti Branch, MEd.,
is an inner city teacher who invited underachieving African-American and Latino males into a support group called The Ever Forward Club. Members achieved a 100% high school graduation rate, with 93% attending college, military or a trade school. He has now formed 10 The Ever Forward Clubs.
In developed nations worldwide, boys are falling behind girls in every academic subject, as well as in mental health, physical health, and in preparation for productive careers. Why is this happening, and what can we do about it? In this intergenerational workshop, Warren Farrell, co-author of The Boy Crisis, and Ashanti Branch, founder of Ever Forward and practitioner-advocate for inner city boys, will introduce participants to the evidence, causes, and solutions to the boy crisis.
