Brother to Brother

for Middle School boys of color

Brother to Brother is inspired by the findings of a task force of parents, teachers and administrators studying the experience of boys of color at Gordon. It draws on the success of other identity-based affinity groups at Gordon like Common Ground and Heritage Language.

The initial goals are:

  • To instill a sense of belonging and confidence in Middle School boys of color
  • To foster connections and mutual support between boys of color across grade levels, identities, and interests
  • To provide an extracurricular outlet for fellowship, guidance, and leadership development

This is meant to be a program that builds on itself and that fosters community, so by signing up, you're committing your child to all of the meetings. 

The initial format will be ten weeks of gatherings on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 6:45pm. There would be four sessions in the first three months to develop routines and bonds quickly then switch to a more sustainable once a month schedule for the remaining five sessions:

October 21st
November 18th
December 2nd
December 16th
January 13th
February 10th
March 10th
April 14th
May 12th

The program is led by Marlon Henry, Gordon's technology director, in collaboration with a group of mentors from Gordon's faculty, staff and parent populations.

The meetings would take place on Gordon's campus, but there are plans for group adventures and excursions as well.
