About The Brotherhood Sister Sol (Bro Sis): The Brotherhood Sister Sol is a social justice youth development organization that since 1995 has worked to respond to inequality, train young people to become empowered as social change agents, and to expand a vision of equity, racial and economic justice – and opportunity and access for all. We are deeply rooted in teaching young people to: form and hone a moral and ethical code and to undergo a political transformation that leads to understanding the inequity that our youth face directly, as well as those around the world, so that through this education they can become social change makers. Bro Sis provides holistic and long-term support services to youth who range in age from eight to twenty-two.
Bro Sis offers wrap around evidence-based programming such as four-six year rites of passage programming, thorough five day a week after school care, school and home counseling, summer camps, job training, college preparation, employment opportunities, community organizing training, and month long international study programs to Africa and Latin America. Based in Harlem, NY but with a national reach, we publish assorted curricula and collections of our members’ writings; train educators from throughout the nation on our approach; and organize and advocate for social change.
