Men's Summit

The Challenge of Becoming Men

About

Join us for the Fourth Annual TCC Men's Summit!

The Men’s Summit is designed for high school students, college students, and community members to join us for honest conversations on The Challenge of Becoming Men.

Given societal pressures we often struggle to understand how to become both a man and a complete human being. How do we build a sense of dignity, integrity, and respect without tearing each other and ourselves down?
