Bro/Sis staff members are seasoned youth development professionals. On average, they have more than 12 years of experience providing culturally relevant direct service to Black and Latinx youth, and more than 8 years experience working within our organization. About 1/3 of our frontline staff are alumni of the organization. Many are first generation college graduates from low-income families.
They speak English, Spanish, French, and Creole. Many are immigrants or undocumented and the primary language in their home is not English. Overwhelmingly, our staff comes from similar communities as our youth and thus has an interconnected and communal understanding of our membership.
