CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A notable summit was held in Cleveland Saturday, April 5 where male community leaders made a positive, lasting impression on young men who will follow in their footsteps and take on community leadership roles. 

The 2nd Annual Boys to Men Health Summit welcomed young men and mentors to Cleveland State University's Main Classroom on 22nd Street. 

The focus was on business, brotherhood and, male-female relationships.

Not only did the men share information geared towards financial success; but, they also shared tools necessary to foster healthy relationships. The interaction was largely aimed to impress upon the crowd of young men how important healthy relationships are; furthermore, to prevent domestic violence. 

The summit is a grassroots event presented by volunteers with the support of MyCom and Neighborhood Leadership Institute. Neighborhood Leadership Institute exists to improve the quality of life for communities in Greater Cleveland through collective leadership and engagement.
