MOTT HAVEN -

A school in the Bronx celebrated male role models Thursday.

Students at the Mott Haven Academy in the Bronx brought their role models to school for the second annual Bring Your Male Role Model to School Day.

Fathers, brothers, uncles and family friends attended the event which celebrates male role models in the lives of young people.

Organizers say male role models promote leadership and positivity in many aspects of young people's lives.

They say Thursday’s event will not only highlight that significance for the school's population of students - two-thirds of which are currently a part of the child welfare system - but will also provide the space for dialogue on how family members can get more involved.
