Rocking Ur Teens presents International Boys Conference 2020

It’s been a difficult year, the stresses mount on our young people who have been in and out of school, and whose GCSE’s and A-Levels have been a postcode lottery because of Covid 19 disruptions. Which is why this year’s Rocking Ur Teens Annual Men’s conference is so important.

Taking place on the 11th November, online from 9.45am to 12.30pm, the conference hopes to inspire our young men but also tackle stigma around mental health and stereotypes concluding with speed mentoring. Speakers include Kamal Hyman, Victor Sosanya, Junior Ogunyemi, Dean Vitte, David Dunkley-Gyimah, who will be sharing their experiences and advice with young men looking to start-up their own businesses, follow their ambitions and tackle the minefield of what it is to be a man.

Geoffrey Williams, co-founder of Rocking Ur Teens comments:

“The world is complicated at the moment, and we’re hearing from young men especially that they are finding it hard to navigate the future ahead. It’s our ambition to help our young people develop entrepreneurial spirit, character, self-esteem and good mental health, and we do this by connecting young people with those who have come out of the other side.

“Sharing experiences and speaking frankly is so valuable. We love talking about successes but more often than not we forget to talk about the journey and its failings, and if we did this a little bit more we’d allow our young people to feel more empowered and able to ask for help.”

Rocking Ur Teens is a social enterprise, it started in 2014 by founders Jenny Garrett, Geoffrey Williams and Sandy Parris. It seeks to inspire young people by sharing stories and experiences providing young people with real-life role models to help shape their resilience, entrepreneurial spirit and character.
