Mr. Brian Coleman was the 2019 National School Counselor of the Year and the first African-American winner of thisprestigious honor. He was also a 2019Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Upstander Award recipient for his commitment to LGBTQA+ youth advocacy. Coleman has spent the last year traveling the country as the cartwheeling "Unicorn Counselor" speaking on issues ranging from comprehensive sexual health education and counseling program design to counselor identity and engagement strategies within the school community.  He is in his sixth year with Jones College Prep where he has served as Counseling Department Chair for three years. At Jones, Mr. Coleman has overseen counseling programming for seniors and freshmen, sophomore sexual health education, JCP’s student mentorship program, and the school’s LGBTQA+ student organization JonesPride. In the last year, he has also participated in DePaul University’s “Here We Do” and McDonald’s “Black and Positively Golden” promotional campaigns. He has also contributed to pieces for CNBC, ForbesTeen Vogue, and NPR among others.  Coleman is a proud graduate of Northwestern University as well as DePaul University where he was named the College of Education’s 2019 Alumni of the Year (and, recently, became an Adjunct Professor!)  He enjoys all things unicorn, most things theatrical, and a good amount of professional wrestling!


The next two sessions will be formally announced soon.  They will be held in February and April.
