COSEBOC Launches Interagency D.R.U.M. Facilitator Course for the City of Cambridge
On a snowy morning last Tuesday, a group of twenty men of color gathered in Cambridge, Massachusetts to embark on the D.R.U.M. journey. The participants included middle school teachers, an elementary school clerk, college and career counselors, family and community engagement specialists, out-of-school time coordinators, and other roles from across the City of Cambridge. They are being trained to facilitate D.R.U.M. programs of their own with the boys and young men of color in their schools and programs.
