The Global Homeboy Network Gathering
Homeboy launched the Global Homeboy Network by hosting the first annual Global Homeboy Network Gathering in August 2014 to provide some structure and strategic direction to the technical assistance that Homeboy has been providing for decades.

The 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Gatherings included leaders from communities across the United States and the globe who have shaped and brought pieces of the Homeboy model back to their work, organizations and communties. Our Gatherings -- these unconventional “conferences”-- have included technical assistance, best practices, storytelling, workshops, panel discussions, keynote addresses, and other networking activities that helped share the knowledge and tools found within the Homeboy model and other organizations who are a part of the Global Homeboy Network.

The Global Homeboy Network now includes over 100 organizations that are actively working to provide hope and a future to high-risk, marginalized populations. We look forward to seeing members of our global Homeboy community in August!
