Breakfast IV Brothers 2015

BREAKFAST IV BROTHERS seeks to be a safe space for brothers to converge and promote their collective experiences as a platform for mentoring, sharing, and growing with one another. Our goal is to create a consistent platform that promotes cross-generational dialogue for men of color in the city of Boston.

This monthly breakfast dialogue series began in December 2013 and is geared toward creating healthier communities with a concentration on men and boys of color. In 2014, these informal dialogues included topics ranging from politics to job creation, education to incarceration, violence prevention to home ownership, faith and community engagement to financial literacy and more.

With such a demand for male mentors of color, this breakfast series is an opportunity for brothers to connect without titles being a deterrent.The agenda is simply to build community through dialogue and relationships. By encouraging "brothers to bring another brother," we will reach a greater number of men and boys and, strengthen our networks, and broaden our platforms.

In 2015, the focus of the dialogue series is time, talent, and treasure management. We will explore how our thoughts, conversations, and actions influence our management of time, talent, and treasure.

Join us on the second Saturday of each month and bring another brother with you.
