ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Center for African American Males National Conference kicks off at Albany State University.
More than 100 South Georgia students spent the day listening to guest speakers on how to become successful.
The conference also teaches students on how to transition from a boy to a man.
" It's lessons of being a man, pointers of what they need to do to become a man," said Andre Joseph, CAAM. "Not only to respect yourself but to keep God first, be humble, stay driven and respect others at all time."
This is the seventh year Albany State University has hosted the conference.
