Becca Conference Keynote

On Friday, November 8th, 2019, Omari served as the Keynote Speaker at the Center for Children & Youth Justice’s Becca Conference where the theme of the conference was:

SUPPORTING THE WHOLE FAMILY: *STRATEGIES, PRACTICES, AND PROGRAMS TO PROMOTE SCHOOL ENGAGEMENT, FAMILY RECONCILIATION, WELL-BEING, AND LIFELONG SUCCESS

Omari shared his experiences with truancy and some of the factors that led to him disengaging from school starting in Elementary School, continuing and getting worse in middle school, leading to his ultimate permanent departure during his high school years.

Omari’s keynote address was well-received and earned him a standing ovation from the crowd of over 300 professionals who work with dealing with issues similar the ones faced by Omari during his own childhood.
