Bigger Than Me is a full-day conference designed to provide middle and high school students with access to enriching educational support networks. Its host organization and other invited educational and community groups have a primary focus to expose secondary educators, youth, and families to opportunities that can help bridge the gap(s) in educational success. 

Last year, we impacted 150 middle through high school students.  This year, our goal is to impact 300 students plus provide professional development and training for their guidance counselors, teachers, and parents.  In order for our students to be knowledgeable about all of their choices, the people who are responsible for their education must be adequately equipped and educated themselves.  


1. We are encouraging students and their schools to register together in a group not to exceed 35 people plus three School Champions.  The cost is $25 per student and $35 per School Champion (this includes their professional development and training). 

2. All forms and monies are due on Friday, November 30, 2018.  In order to keep the event cost-effective, we insist that students and School Champions remit cash or cashier’s checks (payable to HBCU Institute, LLC) to satisfy payment. If you have students who need to make other arrangements, please reach out to us separately. On Monday, November 26, 2018, you will receive pre-registration outreach to coordinate pick up for monies, permission slips, and photo release forms for those students and schools who will be participating.

3.  Transportation to and from the 2018 Bigger Than Me Conference is not provided.
