Brothers on the Rise has developed the following program
models. We both implement these as direct services as well as provide training
and technical assistance to build capacity for schools, nonprofits and public
sector agencies to more effectively and equitably serve male youth of color
through use of these BOTR models and/or other best practices:
Brothers, UNITE! - a year-round literacy, life skills and leadership boys program delivered during out of school time hours. Key modalities are academic support, media literacy and production, as well as athletics, sportsmanship and outdoor education
Lift a Brother Up - a career readiness initiative providing young men job training, paid internship and college preparation focused on health and human services professions. We achieve this with a professional men’s speaker’s series, job training, paid internship, and college prep activities.
Brothers Helping Brothers - a counseling program supporting BOTR youth experiencing social-emotional and behavioral challenges. Along with case management and family engagement, this mental health resource makes up our comprehensive family support services.
Trail Brothers - an environmental education initiative that
connects male youth served by BOTR to nature through hiking, camping and other
forms of outdoor exploration.
Community Capacity Building and Systems Change - delivered through training, coaching, curriculum, consultation, convening, research and writing, all of which empower schools, nonprofits and public agencies to better serve boys and young men of color.
Common to all these services is a gender-responsive approach for male youth that focuses on building resiliency through core modalities of manhood training and positive rites of passage, media literacy and arts education, and sportsmanship and fitness. We also utilize a cascading mentorship model in which high school aged young men help deliver programs for middle and elementary school boys, and middle and elementary school boys provide peer education as well as lead social action projects addressing important community issues to boys of a younger age.
