Hanna Institute is thrilled to bring you the best in networking opportunities, speaking engagements and community resources.
Learn how to foster an environment in which your team is not only productive, but fully alive and thriving, one in which you can better understand each other and support each other.
After a short experiential exercise, Ashanti will share some of his personal history as well as what he’s learned about alleviating the deep-seated barriers that hold us back from achieving our individual and collective potential.
“UnMasking” will challenge you to embrace the parts of yourself that you might be inclined to hide or turn away from, so you can create more authentic connections with yourself, your team and the youth you serve.
Please arrive promptly so you can fully participate in the experiential portion of the breakfast.
Ashanti Branch works to change how young men of color interact with their education and how their schools interact with them. Raised in Oakland by a single mother on welfare, Ashanti left the inner city to study civil engineering. His life changed after he tutored struggling students and discovered his passion for teaching.
He founded The Ever Forward Club, which provides support for African American and Latino males who are not achieving their potential. Ever Forward has helped all of its more than 150 members graduate from high school, and 93% of them have gone on to attend two- or four-year colleges, military or trade school. As the Founding Executive Director for Ever Forward – Siempre Adelante, Ashanti aims to grow the organization to serve thousands of Bay Area students.
