About the College Bound Brotherhood Program:
The College Bound Brotherhood is a program of the Mitchell Kapor Foundation that seeks to expand the number of young black men in the Bay Area who are prepared for a college education. The program works to strengthen the college-going culture for young black men; build a college access movement for organizations focused on the enrichment of black male youth; and provide resources to build stronger, more effective organizations. The College Bound Brotherhood program also has launched a public, online database that assists youth, parents, and educators in locating college readiness programs in the Bay Area (collegeboundbros.org). In addition, the program provides continued support for grant recipient organizations, parents, and young men through conferences, local workshops, and professional development. Since the founding of the Brotherhood program in 2008, the Kapor Foundation has distributed nearly $1 million in grants to 25 San Francisco Bay Area organizations. For more info, visit mkf.org.
