Join us in Atlanta for F1NE-TUNE's 2023 Treasure Hunt Conference (THC2023). Known to be a city rich in history, creative minds, and nonstop fun, there is no better place for us to come together for Treasure Hunt's first in-person event. 

F1NE-TUNE's Treasure Hunt offers academic, social, and emotional strategies to help educators, parents, and community members unlock the God-given treasures within school-aged black males. 

Check out our 11Alive News feature below.


It is no secret that black males are under attack. We must be intentional about changing the narrative. Our conference theme is Boots on the Ground because we are rallying troops to take the fight for school-aged black males to the next level.
