Bro/Sis currently resides at 512 West 143rd Street, in the Hamilton Heights District of Harlem, in a more than 100 year old brick townhouse affectionately known by the community as ‘the brownstone’.
For nearly 20 years community youth have looked to the brownstone as a place to explore their identities, develop an ethical code, and discover their voice.
Adjacent to the brownstone is the Frank White Community Garden. Through a joint partnership with the New York City Park’s Dept. we are the stewards of this urban greenspace. Through our Environmental Programming members participate in a broad range of learning activities and community organizing around urban food justice, land rights, and gardening skills.
This spring we will break ground for our new home.
“The Brotherhood/Sister Sol is one of the most unique youth development organizations in the country. I know their work well and they teach young people to become social change makers, activist/artists and to succeed in life. Their work is transformational and their new building in Harlem will allow for the further development of an essential organization that works every day for equity, equality and opportunity.It will represent the solidifying of an institution.”Harry Belafonte
