We are on a mission to inspire Black boys to dream big and embrace their authentic selves. Through small moments of support, guidance, and encouragement, we join them on their journeys, reminding them that they are special and valued.
We envision a world where every Black boy has access to a high-quality, holistic, culturally relevant, and equitable education. We are advocates for a more just and compassionate world where all kids have the adequate resources and support systems they need to lead a healthy, dignified life. We believe if you combine that foundation with staying true to your most authentic self, dreaming big, setting goals, and staying focused on your deepest desires, there’s no limit to what you can do.
What We Do
We help Black boys feel seen, heard, and supported by creating programs for the critical stages of their journeys to adulthood that motivate them to see the best in themselves and strive for a future they can be proud of. In doing so, we hope they will gain a greater sense of self and the values they care about, be more likely to complete their education, and more eager about their options beyond high school and college.Explore Our Programs
Our Core Values
Authenticity, community, courage, curiosity, and hope are values that we embody daily and that we hope to instill in those who participate in our programs. When we can help boys show up for themselves and others with these values in mind, it gives them the power to chart their own course and be their whole selves.
Brother Box was founded in 2018 by Taylor Culliver. He strives to show up for himself and others in meaningful ways that inspire hope and keep the world moving forward. “In a world that tends to put Black boys in a very narrow box, it’s our job to do whatever small part we can to make sure the world sees them, supports them, and loves them for who they are.”
Together with our community of generous individuals and partners, we are building a sustainable organization to create a world of hope and possibility for Black boys everywhere. Check out our annual reports below, highlighting our growth and impact over the years.
