Brothers on the Rise
Brothers on the Rise responsibly empowers male youth and their adult allies to achieve individual success, develop healthy relationships and contribute to a more just and equitable society. We accomplish this through comprehensive gender-responsive, culturally appropriate, preventive, pipeline programs that directly serve boys and young men of color. We also provide capacity building for schools, nonprofits and public agencies through training, coaching, curriculum development, consulting and convening – all towards empowering the community to effectively raise, educate and develop boys into responsible, peaceful, caring and productive young men. Brothers on the Rise is based in Oakland with programs impacting youth, families, teachers and providers throughout the Bay Area.
Join us Thursday, December 5, 2013 from 6-8 PM at the New Parkway Theater in Oakland for the Inaugural Bay Area Boys and Young Men of Color Short Film Festival. The event features powerful pieces from BOTR youth; "Hoop Dreams" Director Frederick Marx; "The Waiting Room" Director Peter Nicks; and other amazing individuals and organizations.
