BUILD hosted an interactive workshop for young men of color at the Boom Experience, an all-day event designed for male students who identify as African, Black, Latino, Native American or a mix of any, who are in grades 7-12 in the Bellevue School District. The Boom Experience provided an opportunity for students to connect, be inspired and find support, and to be led and taught by men who racially identify like them. Students spent the day learning and engaging in discussions around race, culture, leadership and self-empowerment. BUILD members shared resources and stories with the young men about their personal experiences working and participating in different profession, and also highlighted community offerings that focus on supporting youth of color in the greater Seattle area.
