The Community Involvement Program (CIP) is proud to present the BLOCK (Building Leaders Overcoming Challenges with Knowledge) Conference at University of the Pacific.
The mission of the BLOCK conference is to connect, inspire and support local youth (specifically targeting boys and young men of color) to engage and excel academically, promote responsibility and self-advocacy, and improve communication and self-efficacy. Ultimately, encouraging educational engagement leads to college as a realistic option for each youth.
CIP created the BLOCK Conference to motivate and empower Stockton Unified School District youth, specifically young African American and Latino males.
Founded in 1969, CIP has evolved from historic roots into a premier, comprehensive retention and scholarship program for first-generation and low-income Stockton residents from underrepresented backgrounds.
