Testimonials
"It is an honor to write this mini essay on how brother to brother has benefited me. Before I came into contact with the brother to brother program, I hated college and was contemplating dropping out. I did not have any motivation to continue and I struggled with many issues. One day when I was leaving class, I ran into a friend and he stopped me because for some reason he knew my mind was heavy. He was a Brother to Brother Mentor who discussed my situation and told me about the Brother to Brother program. I walked with him to a summer training session and was invited to stay. It has been one of the best things if not the best thing to happen to me since I have been at Broward College. I have been exposed to so many different opportunities. I no longer see college the way I did previously. I recommend Brother to Brother to any incoming freshman latino or African American male."

"The Brother To Brother program has been a life altering experience. This program taught me that lack of education for today's Black and Latino is detrimental to the existence of both races. Brother To Brother has positively impacted my social life. Instead of hanging with the wrong crowd and getting into trouble, Brother To Brother blessed me with a band of brothers who push me to do better and graduate."
