Keys to High School Success

2016, Ron Hering Awards

“MKP has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding with Colorado School District 9R, and is in official sponsorship supporting Conference needs.”

The MKP Durango Community in southwest Colorado, in collaboration with Durango School District 9R and the Women’s Resource Center will host the 3rd Annual ‘Keys To High School Success’ conference on Thursday, May 5, for local 8th grade boys and girls transitioning to high school. The conference, a character development opportunity for more than 250 boys and an equal number of girls, features workshops focused on nurturing Responsibility, Perseverance, and Respect. For the boys, interactive workshops include hands-on experiences with aikido, drumming, low-ropes courses, and other events designed to help the boys identify and articulate issues related to connecting with the Mature Masculine. For the past two years, these four MKP men have been involved at all levels, from providing workshops to writing grants to coordinating conference logistics and overseeing 30-40 volunteers.
