4th Annual Empowerment Gathering of 500+ Fathers, Men, and Boys!  

The SC Male Achievement Conference promotes and uplifts male achievement among men and boys of color. We invite fathers, boys and their families from all over the state to come spend the day networking and becoming empowered.

With over 1,500 attendees from all throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Missouri, California, Delaware, and Illinois to name a few places, we have made new friends and colleagues.
 
Attendees, especially the Fathers and Young Men RAVED about keynote speeches from Mr. Kenneth Braswell, Director of President Obama’s National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (in Washington, DC) and Mr. Marcus Lattimore, former USC GREAT, Chris Broussard, NBA Sports Analyst - Fox Sports and all of the the workshop speakers and sessions.

During this one-day conference, experts and community members helped to identify and discuss solutions that will:
  • Promote and encourage father involvement
  • Teach life skills and study techniques that will lead to high academic performance in minority boys in 7th - 12th Grade
  • Foster healthy, violence free lives and communities
