RPS News: Brothers United

Jason Kamras, RPS Superintendent shares:

I’m thrilled to share that, yesterday morning, RPS launched a new initiative called “Brothers United,” which connects our boys of color with male mentors of color. We’ve started with about a dozen young people from George Mason ES and will soon be expanding to other schools.

In addition to receiving regular support from their mentors, our students will participate in a number of weekend events to broaden their horizons and connect them with local leaders of color in various fields, including science, art/music, agriculture, and more.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Shadae Harris, our Chief Engagement Officer, for conceiving of this program and bringing it to fruition. We’re truly grateful for her leadership. I’d also like to thank Mayor Stoney and Delegate Bagby for joining us yesterday at the launch. Finally, I’d like to thank the Science Museum for hosting us, and give a special shout-out to Rich Conti, the museum’s Chief Wonder Officer (Best. Title. Ever.).
