Little BRO Summer Camp Is awarded 10,000.00 from Capital One Bank!!! YAY.

the project

Our mission is to transform the literacy struggles, self confidence and life experiences for young men in under resourced communities. The Little BRO’s Summer Camp aims to be that positive space that supports families in these areas.

the steps

The camp is a 8 week program serving 75 3rd to 5th grade young men in the Brownsville Community. The program will be a all day summer camp helping participants build on their reading and comprehension abilities. Developing social emotional tools needed to communicate their emotions positively and the learning the art of leadership from today’s and yesterday’s social leaders. The camp will also be a part of a huge community project where they will create something that will inspire peers and family members.

 

why we're doing it

Within Brownsville Brooklyn there is great work happening to support youth. However, families are still finding it very difficult to find free summer programs that are more then just sports related for their sons. The Little BRO’s Summer Camp will enhance the experience for young men exposing them to different activities while being a huge support for families looking for something positive for their child. We aim to be a FUN LOVING SPACE WHERE ALL YOUNG MEN CAN FIND THEIR VOICE!
