The Brotherhood/Sister Sol:
Educational and Emotional Support for Young Men of Color
Positivity. Community. Knowledge. Future.
The Brotherhood/Sister Sol (BHSS) gives youth in Harlem ages 8-22 the support, guidance and love they need to succeed in school and in life. A key to their success is the fact that they help young people who have experienced violence or abuse find healthy ways of dealing with the effects of that trauma. The in-school “Rites of Passage” program helps young people develop their emotional intelligence, critical thinking skills, and other tools for learning. The after-school program provides academic support and enrichment activities.
