Educational Programming, Training, Organizing for Social Change
Founded in 1995, The Brotherhood Sister Sol (BroSis) provides comprehensive, holistic and long-term support services to youth who range in age from eight to twenty-two.
BroSis offers wrap around evidence-based programming. The organization focuses on issues such as leadership development and educational achievement, sexual responsibility, sexism and misogyny, political education and social justice, Pan-African and Latino history, and global awareness. BroSis provides four-six year rites of passage programming, thorough five day a week after school care, school and home counseling, summer camps, job training and employment, college preparation, community organizing training, and international study programs to Africa and Latin America.
BroSis is unique in that we are locally based, yet with a national reach as we are: an evidence-based program that serves young people of color from economically poor communities and are seen as a model for the nation; we organize and advocate for social change; and we publish curricula and educate and train educators across the nation on our model.
Our theory of change is to provide multi-layered support, guidance, education and love to our membership, to teach them to have self-discipline and form order in their lives, and then to offer opportunities and access so that they may develop agency.
