Non-profoit Retreat,

Chicago, Illinois, United States Chicago, Illinois, United States

  • About the event

    This event is a Profound Gentlemen retreat. We provide content, character, and professional development for male educators of color. This retreat is for our Gentlemen to learn how to start a non-profit organizationof their own.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Profound Gentlemen was started because two black men discussed there struggles as men of color. As time passed more men of color were brought into the conversation. The business model is cohert based. Each gentlemen is placed with a male educator who has 3-4 years of educational experience and they have consitant one on ones. Out of all the teachers in America only 2% are men of color. This retreat is to assist our Gentlemen in the character development journey by giving them the opportunity to start non-profit organizations of their own.

    Jordan Staples

    My name is Jordan Staples I am a community outreach assistant. I recently graduated Butler High School. My favorite clubs at Butler were DECA and Club Unify. DECA is a marketing club and we go to conferences on the district, State, and international level. At the conferences we have test and role plays, In Club Unify we help special needs kids get ready for the special olympics and we make them feel like they have friends. For me personally they made me feel like I had a friend instead of the other way around. For majority of high school I sat at lunch by myself, but after joining the club I was always welcomed at their lunch table.
