Young Men to be Involved & Inspired at UVI’s 2016 Man Up Conference

The University of the Virgin Islands will host the sixth annual Man Up Male Empowerment Conference on April 5 and 6, on St. Thomas and on April 7, on St. Croix.  

This year’s Man Up Conference has a new format. In addition to having dynamic keynote speakers, young men attending the conference will be able to meet in smaller groups and be able to have their voices heard. This new approach is indicative of the theme “Man Up: All IN – INcluded, INvolved, INspired.”

Also new this year, on St. Thomas the conference will be held for two days. On April 5, young males in junior high and middle school will meet at the Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School. On April 6, senior high school male students will meet at the Charlotte Amalie High School Auditorium.  The Man Up conference on St. Croix will be held on April 7, on UVI’s Albert A. Sheen Campus. All events are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. More information is available on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
