Brief Program Summary: Lynhurst 7th and 8th Grade Brothers of Another color is a program that was established within Wayne Township in 2010 in order to promote academic achievement, healthy relationships, and collaboration amongst African American, Latino, and other under- served male sub-groups. The program will provide a source of fellowship between African American, Latino, and other under-served male sub-groups and Wayne Township staff and community members. This program will also provide a way for students to become a support system for each other. It will provide positive adult role models for students. The intent is to prepare these students for college and also to dispel the urban myth that it is “un-cool” to get good grades and to be considered intelligent. They will also work on recognizing their strengths along with their weaknesses so they are able to build on both. They are bright students who may need assistance in reaching their full potential. This program will develop these students academically, socially, and morally to ensure they are reaching their full potential.
Success Metrics: Student outcomes including academic and discipline data.
