African American boys are falling behind in almost every measure compared to other ethnic groups. In 2009, a Brother2Brother (B2B) chapter was established in the Des Moines Public Schools to address educational barriers experienced by male students of color and to empower these students to set higher standards of achievement while fostering a spirit of caring. B2B strives to increase the number of male students of color who successfully complete middle school and high school and go on to positively impact their communities.
The group meetings will be on Thursdays after school from 3:30-4:30. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Meeks.
