Fulton County's 2nd Annual One Humanity Conference to Teach Youth Leadership Skills

2012 Conference to focus on leadership development for young boys

Fulton County wants young men between 8 and 11-years old living in Fulton County to participate in the 2ndAnnual One Humanity Conference sponsored by the Youth Leadership Academy for Boys.  The conference will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2012, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Fulton County Public Safety Training Center located at 3025 Merk Road in College Park.

The goal of the One Humanity Conference is to develop young males’ understanding of manhood and recognition that we are all connected.  Additionally, the conference teaches that our differences should not hinder teamwork or generosity, but make the challenges and hurdles of life easier to overcome.  The 2011 One Humanity Conference featured the participation of 75 boys and girls from 15 schools and other organizations.

The Fulton County Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) for Boys, created by Fulton County Commissioner William “Bill” Edwards and supported by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, is one of the initiatives of the Call to Manhood program.   Call to Manhood is facilitated by the Fulton County Housing and Human Services Department, Office of Children and Youth.  The vision of YLA for Boys is to equip young men with the tools to provide visionary, ethical, and socially responsible leadership for their community.  The aim is to cultivate their ability to see the world and its issues not as daunting challenges, but rather opportunities.

Registration must be completed by all participating organizations and individuals by Monday, February 13, 2012.  Chaperones must accompany youth to the conference.  For more information, contact Youth Leadership Academy Coordinator Spencer Burton-Webb at (404) 612-2200 or email Spencer.Webb@fultoncountyga.gov
