EDUCATING CHILDREN OF COLOR CONFERENCE
The 8th Annual Educating Children of Color Summit will take place on January 17, 2015 at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. The Summit is designed for educators and school staff, juvenile justice professionals, high school youth and their parents. The Summit's mission is to “dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline for children of color and children in poverty, through education. “
The cost for professionals is $25 and that money is returned to youth in the form of scholarships. There is no cost to parents or youth. The Summit has awarded $74,000 in scholarship money to high school juniors and seniors over the course of the last 7 years. Also, 70+ laptops have been given away to youth in attendance. The day counts as eight contact hours and professional participants can pay an additional $27.50 to get .5 of a graduate credit from Adams State University. The last day to register is January 10, 2015.
