So far we have convened twelve networking breakfast events and two
annual summits, involving approximately 200 unique organizations in the St. Louis region, ranging from small independent organizations to large non-profit entities.

HomeGrown StL Strategic Networking Breakfasts are convenings of leaders of programs offering services to Black boys and young men in St. Louis City and County. Networking Breakfasts are designed for programs primarily serving Black boys and young men, as well as other community service providers who are interested.

Anytime that I’ve been to a Networking Breakfast and I’ve been listening I always take something back that I can use right away.
