Summit Remix Series
Quote "Ponte las pilas and be fully prepared" by Mejia from our Summit Remix

The Texas Male Student Leadership Summit brings together boys and young men of color to educate and engage students on a variety of topics related to college and career readiness, identity, brotherhood, and more.

This year we met virtually over a series of events to remix our support for students. Our speakers spoke about staying motivated, self-empowerment, and taking action.
