UW Brotherhood Initiative Fall Leadership Summit
Welcome to Darrin Howell's Personal Fundraising Page!
Over the past year, the steering committee of the University of Washington's Brotherhood Initiative has labored to provide young males of color with the tools, resources, and mentors that will develop them into the leaders of tomorrow; while this past year has been impactful, we have ambitions to facilitate a Fall Leadership Summit that could foster even deeper personal growth, deeper clarity of one's passions, and deeper group cohesion for all of the young men included in this initiative.
As a recent alum from the University of Washington, serving on the Brotherhood's Steering Committee has been exceptionally rewarding. In the same way that I have been encouraged and served by various mentors throughout my journey here at UW, it has been a huge gift to be able to advocate and connect with our first cohort of students. As someone who has been called to stretch himself, to take risks, and sharpen my strengths, I am especially supportive of the opportunity to fund a retreat that will challenge these young men to live out their identities as servant leaders. Our communities need more men, especially men of color, who can continue the cycle of raising up leaders, inspiring the next generation of men and women who can tap into their potential to impact both local and global networks.
Your contributions could provide yet another key resource in developing these young men into the leaders that our communities need them to be. Thank you for your consideration, and thank you for your generosity!
The Brotherhood Initiative
Fall Leadership Summit will be a high impact leadership and learning
experience. This last year we welcomed our first cohort of freshman males
of color into a new program that is designed to support them throughout their entire
time at UW and help them in navigating the university as well as understanding
the complexities of intersecting identities and to eliminate institutional
barriers for males of color.
For 2017-18 we are designing a program to focus on leadership for the continuing sophomore males of color as well as to welcome in a new cohort of freshman undergraduates. Our Fall Leadership Summit will be a key program in setting a foundation for support, team cohesion, and common goals that will ensure success.
Our stretch goal for this fundraiser is $10,000 which will cover all of our expenses. We are setting our realistic goal at $6,000, but we welcome you to give big!! Our cost breakdown is below.
Day 1: Sophomore launching: Welcome back for the first cohort of Brotherhood Initiative males of color as they enter their second year of college and support them in critical reflection of their first year as well as creating a strong academic plan and setting professional and personal goals for their sophomore year of college.
Night 1: Leadership Development: We will be preparing this sophomore cohort to welcome the incoming freshman cohort and to have a peer-to-peer mentorship matching.
Day 2: Welcoming the new cohort: The sophomore cohort will help design the welcome program for the freshman cohort.
Night 2: Passing the torch: the sophomore cohort will depart after dinner and the new Freshman cohort will do team building activities
Day 3: Setting goals for freshman year and beyond and go home
Cost Breakdown out of a $10,000 total budget:
