The ACES MTR Advisory Council, in conjunction with the Southern Connecticut State University School of Education and the RESC MTR Alliance hosted the 3rd Annual Future Educators Symposium on May 3, 2016. The purpose of the Future Educators Symposium was to introduce, inspire and motivate young men of color to consider education as a career choice. 125 male, high school students of color from ACES, Hamden, Meriden, Middletown, New Haven, Norwalk, Waterbury and West Haven Public Schools spent the day at Southern Connecticut State University participating in several activities throughout the day including a panel discussion with current male educators of color, a keynote speaker and interactive breakout sessions which allowed them to share their thoughts and ideas about the education profession.
