LIVING BRAVE RETREAT

In October 2019 , we honored a group of men who expressed bravery through speaking and narrating their life's challenges as men of color in America. Each honoree will engage in a weekend of activities on deepening their impact in their community.

 

Each participant concluded the weekend charged to impact another young male in their community.

"WOW!" I needed a space like this when I was younger. Thank you for providing a space for collaboration, challenge, and healing. Keep doing this amazing work."

"I really enjoyed this retreat. Being able to have interactions with other men of color with a wide range of backgrounds was comforting but also challenged each of us to be understanding of our differences. I love the purpose of the retreat and I’ll definitely be implementing aspects of this retreat moving forward."

"Dom is an amazing host. Everyone that attended was a breath of fresh air. Honestly, the whole retreat made it sooo easy to be open and free with no judgments."

"I think it was a great weekend-- I got to explore my own background and also hear others journey challenged me to discover more about myself."
