My Other Brother (MOB) was founded by Spring 2020 San Francisco State University (SFSU) Educational Leadership Doctoral graduate and former CSU East Bay EOP Counselor, Dr. Ishman Anderson. MOB works with K-12 schools and communities in the Bay Area to empower African American students (particularly men) and provide a sense of community supporting their retention and college success. The proposed activity is to establish a sense of belonging for K-12 youth (especially males of color) rooted in mentorship, culture, and identity.
While M.O.B. focuses on African American men, the organization and activities are open to African American women and underrepresented populations. M.O.B outreach mentors are prepared and placed in the K-12 school to help youth build solid foundations for success in their current school and preparation for college and life.
