It's a Guy Thing

Daylong conference for and about boys scheduled for April 19, 2013

On April 19, Pacific University’s Center for Gender Equity will host a conference for Western Washington County boys, ages 12 through 15. The daylong seminar is designed to bring the boys together to discuss diverse issues that schools often cannot adequately address. Boys’ conferences like this one are shedding light on important issues while letting boys express themselves, explore what it means to be male in today’s society, and propose strategies to address their common concerns.

Through the “It’s A Guy Thing” Conference, boys will have the opportunity to speak on pressing issues and be heard with the aid of trained facilitators from Pacific’s Schools of Professional Psychology and Education. The summit will include an opening session, small group sessions on specific issues, activities, and a free “It’s a Guy Thing” gift for participants. The conference model is designed to engage boys in critical thought and constructive problem solving, while demonstrating that adults care about their educational and personal development.

Date:  Friday, April 19, 2013

Time:  8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Place:  Milky Way, 2017 21st Forest Grove, Oregon

Cost:   $5

There is also a PARENTS’ MEETING at 8:30 to 9 a.m. in Old College Hall on College Way, where parents will get information about the events of the day and learn about the research and rationale behind the conference.

Register for the conference by April 17, or at the door (space pending)
