African American young men from the San Francisco Bay Area who are
graduating from high school and heading to college are invited to take
center stage June 3 at a unique graduation ceremony aimed at
celebrating and amplifying their achievements.
The event is part of the Mitchell Kapor Foundation's College Bound
Brotherhood, a college readiness program that aims to expand the
number of young black men in the San Francisco Bay Area who are
prepared for college. Youth
participating in the event will be eligible for a $100 stipend to
defray the cost of college books. Since the launch of the College
Bound Brotherhood in 2008, the Kapor Foundation has distributed more
than $1 million in grants to organizations that support young black
men through college readiness workshops, college tours, academic
coaching, mentoring and much more.
The 2012 College Bound Brotherhood Graduation Celebration, which takes
place at 5 p.m. on June 3 at the Kaiser
Center, is supported in part by Mechanics Bank.
