Generation Schools Network's Youth-Centered Approach is Highlighted at COSEBOC
Andrew Greenaway, a senior at Brooklyn Generation School, and Junior Manon, Manager of College and Career Readiness at Generation Schools Network (GSN), presented at the 9th annual gathering of the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color (COSEBEC), in Memphis, TN. The workshop, a collaboration with College Access: Research and Action (CARA), highlighted GSN's youth-centered approach and its success in engaging young men of color in the college application process.
While it is common for GSN's staff to present in conferences, Junior says that the student's participation made this a unique experience, "I was really inspired by Andrew's commitment, dedication and hard work throughout the process. I was also very moved by his reflective demeanor and inquisitive attitude... It reminds me why I do this and what still needs to be done."
"Now I have something really big to brag about," commented Andrew on his experience.
