B4B targets young men to help develop their academic, personal and social success in college.

College can seem daunting, especially if a young person is the first in his or her family to pursue a post-secondary education. Studies show that groups and organizations help students succeed by developing relationships and connections with fellow students and key leaders at a college or university.

To give students that head start, Victory Early College High School partnered with Lone Star College’s Brother for Brother (B4B). The organization helps students develop their academic, personal and social success in school. Volunteer faculty and staff from Lone Star College (LSC) mentor them. The young men of Brother for Brother work hard to support and encourage each other in being responsible students, community leaders and volunteers.

Brother for Brother Objectives

  • To graduate all members from Lone Star College
  • Help members achieve successful development in social, academic and personal aspects of their lives.
