OUR MISSION

Brother to Brother Mentoring Program is a 501c3 non-profit organization, established in 2007, that focuses on meeting the needs of all 4th and 5th grades, middle and high school male adolescents.  Our group mentoring activities are designed to be school-anchored and community-based to foster safe, nurturing, and positive relationships between adult mentors and their male mentees, their families, teachers and guidance counselors, as well as local community leaders and social support groups.

OUR PROGRAM

MAKING BETTER LIFE CHOICES

We offer young men a community where they can hear from others their age, and from men as well, as they share their stories and understand they are NOT ALONE.  With mentoring young men are making better choices resulting in higher grades and fewer discipline issues.  Teenage years are the critical window of opportunity to empower boys to follow their dreams.

ENRICHING A YOUNG PERSON'S LIFE

Our mentors come from diverse backgrounds and professions – law enforcement, small business, education, government and more!  They have lots of energy and demonstrated leadership skills, and a desire to lead and build strong minds.  They are regular people, just like you, and don’t need any special degrees or job skills — just a willingness to want to positively influence a young persons life.

HELP US CHANGE LIVES

Since 2007, Brother to Brother (BTB) has provided students with free access to mentoring, drug and alcohol counseling, life skills workshops, quality facilitators, tickets to offsite events, and after school recreational programs.  This access is made possible through generous community donations and grants.  By helping the teens of BTB, you are not just helping them, but you're also investing in the long-term future health of our community and nation.
