Brotherhood Program – Men of Color Initiative
The Brotherhood Program is a learning community that addresses the achievement gap and educational equity at COA. It promotes full-time attendance, academic excellence, leadership through culturally relevant pedagogy, service learning and social justice curriculum — making the college experience an exciting, fulfilling and successful experience for men of color.
The program was established at the College of Alameda to assist men of color with academic success. Research states that men of color (African American & Latino males) are the lowest performing population when compared to others. In order to combat this issue the program is designed to support and teach participants various skills such as: Leadership, critical thinking, problem solving, and effective time management, to name a few.
