MY BRO OVERVIEW:
‘My Bro’ is an empowerment and well being programme for Young Black Men (YBM) of African and/or Caribbean origin/heritage aged 10-19 living in Sandwell and surrounding areas of the Black Country/Birmingham.
The programme will support YBM to be at the centre of conversations and action-taking to address racial opportunity disparity and prejudice that is impacting their mental wellbeing. Through various intervention routes, the project will aim to shift power imbalances and elevate aspirations, wellbeing and personal development. The project will enable YBM to take the lead in improving the wellbeing of themselves while also addressing issues such as offering extra support for their families during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
