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 and parents unlock the potential of school-aged black males. We believe black males who have overcome personal and societal challenges to attain success have the most insight into effectively supporting school-aged black males. Therefore, dynamic black males provide the voice for Treasure Hunt events. 

THC2023's theme is Boots on the Ground, for we are rallying troops to take our fight for school-aged black males to the next level.
