My Other Brother (MOB) was founded by current San Francisco State University (SFSU) Educational Leadership Doctoral candidate and former CSU East Bay EOP Counselor Ishman Anderson 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 students (outreach mentors) are prepared and placed in the K-12 school to help them build solid foundations for success in their current school and preparation for college.
