The IBSC Annual Conference was hosted by Boys' Latin during the week of June 25. Here, 600 educators from 120 schools in 20 countries from five continents shared ideas and strategies on how to engage and reach young boys – who are naturally competitive, tend to want more structure than girls and need guidance as they become men.
