EMOC: Empowering Males of Color EMOC programs support schools in developing effective strategies to enhance the student experience, increase achievement and engagement, and prepare our males of color for college, careers, and life beyond DCPS. The goal is to ensure that male students of color receive tailored, academic and personal supports in the form of mentoring, enrichment opportunities, social emotional learning (SEL), specialized experiences, and positive behavioral interventions. The pillars of EMOC are: > Leading Men Fellowship: An opportunity for recent DCPS male graduates of color (ages 18-24) to serve as literacy tutors in early childhood classrooms and receive coaching and support in pursuit of a career in early childhood education. > Middle School Leadership Academy (MSLA): A Saturday leadership academy designed to engage middle grade students in habits of effective leadership, community accountability and academic enrichment which focuses on equipping them to tackle issues impacting males of color. > Male Educators of Color Collaborative (MEOCC): A source of fellowship and professional development for male teachers of color, a valuable yet underrepresented group of educators. >Innovation Funds: Provide resources and support to develop programs addressing the needs of Black and Latino male students and educators

We learned some AMAZING news out of the city of Atlanta this afternoon. One of our stellar DC Public Schools alums - who also served as an intern with the Empowering Males of Color initiative last summer - has been elected as the 85th Student Government Association President of Morehouse College. We are so proud to see him continue to shine and we're incredibly excited to witness the continued impact he has on his community.

Morehouse Empowerment Ceremony at Ballou SHS

[Please remember to watch this in HD]

On Friday, October 9th, the DC Public Schools' Empowering Males of Color team joined forces with Morehouse College to deliver a special empowerment ceremony for several young men at Ballou Senior High School.

It was a unique opportunity for our students to engage with 60 men of Morehouse and learn from them firsthand about the experience of attending one of the most historic universities in the country. They also spent time with faculty and staff from Morehouse and representatives from Urban Alliance.

This clip is just a small snapshot of some of the knowledge and wisdom that was shared. A special thanks goes to the Morehouse College Student Government Association for all of their hard work and dedication in planning an amazing experience for our young men.
