One hundred and sixty students signed up and attended this year’s Minority Institute of Leadership and Excellence (M.I.L.E.) Conference. A conference designed to train, build, and challenge our youths through lessons on learning leadership characteristics and navigating obstacles that may arise from being a person of color.

On March 6, 2024 from 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m., the M.I.L.E. Conference was held at the College of Southern MD in Prince Frederick for Calvert County Public High School students. In 2017, CBW, CCPS, and CSM collaborated on this event thus creating the first M.I.L.E. community collaborative in-person event for Calvert County minority students since 2019.
