The 5th annual Community Impact Assembly is a retreat-style conference hosted by Profound Gentlemen. This event gathers over 200 male educators from around the country for a weekend of educational development, self-reflection and establishing relationships. Through this event, participants will be able to further impact the communities they are serving.

The conference will be held on March 12th – 15th, in Charlotte, NC.  During the weekend, Gentlemen will participate in school visits, thought-partner conversations, indulge in reflective activities, and engage in sessions hosted by educators in our community.

This years’ theme is “My Brother and Me”
