Empowering Boys And Supporting Families
Boys Lead Foundation is an international organization that was founded in 2017 with the mission to educate and empower boys in tech, sports, politics, entrepreneurship, social justice, leadership, girls’ empowerment, masculinity, and STEM to transform our world.
The Global Boys Summit is the brainchild of the Boys Leadership Foundation as a platform to provide boys and young men of color with the opportunity to learn about gender equality, network with other leaders, and be empowered in tech, sports, politics, entrepreneurship, social justice, leadership, girls’ empowerment, and STEM on a global level learning from experts, educators, advocates, entrepreneurs, politicians, and others.
This summit includes sessions that will help boys and young men of color learn more about these themes, and more significantly, it will provide many opportunities for them to apply these abilities. We believe that connection is essential, therefore at this summit and in our workshops, we will emphasise establishing community and empowering boys and young men of color. Not only would they gain the experience, but they would also leave with lifelong friendships.
Boys and young men of color are often excluded from conversations about gender equality and other topics that matter to them. The Global Boys Summit aims to address this by providing a space for boys and young men of color to share their stories, identify solutions, and connect with one another around the world.
Global Boys Summit is held to celebrate, raise awareness, and amplify the voices of advocates, mentors, coaches, parents, caregivers, and everyone working for the development and empowerment of boys and young men of color across the globe. . This summit aims to inspire boys to feel a sense of belonging and raise awareness for empowerment. This empowerment will bring about positive changes in our communities and the world.
This summit will launch a campaign to have the UN recognize the international day for boys.

Boys are profoundly impacted by the policies and initiatives affecting their communities,

A wellspring of fresh perspectives and ideas, BYMOC can often see new ways of bringing solutions to existing problems and challenges, BLF strategy encourages students to identify and implement their own solutions to the various issues.
No one can do it alone! Through relationship and coalition building, we connect with individuals, organizations and others who believe in the cause of BYMOC to power our collective movements with the brilliance, resourcefulness, and wisdom of our partners.

We recognize and value the positive accomplishments that volunteers can achieve by working together. We believe that our programs positively impact volunteers as much as the youth and communities we serve.
We demonstrate our appreciation to people by being kind and empathetic.
We are ready to take bold and daring steps to achieve our goals.
