A Harlem based organization, Bro/Sis currently resides at 140 Hamilton Place, at 143rd and Amsterdam, our temporary home as our construction project gets underway. This fall we will bid farewell to our former space for nearly 20 years, a more than 100-year-old brick townhouse affectionately known by the community as ‘the brownstone’, and break ground on our capital project: a new state of the art, nearly 20,000 square foot facility. This new space will allow us to expand on the critical support and services we offer to our members.
We will continue to have access to and facilitate programs in the Green Thumb Frank White Community Garden. Our joint partnership with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation names us as stewards of this urban greenspace -which is one of the most used public community gardens in New York City.
Through our Environmental Programming members participate in a broad range of learning activities and community organizing around urban food justice, sustainability and gardening skills.
“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
