B.R.O.T.H.E.R. (Building Relationships and Opportunities That Help Encourage Responsibility) is a mentoring program designed to help the male population of Carrollton Junior High School reach their academic and social potential. We provide a mentor for selected students. Monthly activities provide opportunities to enrich both mentors and mentees. Mentors agree to meet with a student on a regular basis and monitor his growth throughout the year. Keeping these youth engaged improves their self worth, increases their level of success in school, and develops them into productive members of our community.

The program is also geared toward educating students on healthy practices that can help them avoid these deadly diseases. This event is sponsored by the American Heart Association.

Students will participate in singing, acting, and dancing during class and will be a part of two performances, a chorus concert and a musical production.
