Media Invited to Cover UVI’s Man-Up Male Conference

Man Up Male Empowerment Conference

Members of the media are invited to photograph and cover the University of the Virgin Islands’ Sixth Annual Man-Up Male Empowerment Conference on April 5 and 6, on St. Thomas and on April 7, on St. Croix.  

This year’s Man-Up Conference has a new format. In addition to having dynamic keynote speakers, young men attending the conference will be able to meet in smaller groups and be able to have their voices heard. This new approach is indicative of the theme “Man Up: All IN – INcluded, INvolved, INspired.”

Also new this year, on St. Thomas the conference will be held for two days. On April 5, young males in junior high and middle school will meet at the Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School. On April 6, senior high school male students will meet at the Charlotte Amalie High School Auditorium.  The Man-Up conference on St. Croix will be held on April 7, on UVI’s Albert A. Sheen Campus. All events are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sherman A. Browne, founder and chief empowerment officer of AIMHigh International, LLC, will be the keynote speaker of the Man-Up Conferences on St. Thomas. Former Labor Commissioner and entrepreneur Albert Bryan, Jr. will be the keynote speaker on St. Croix.
