· Brothers Reaching Up Higher (BRUH) supports the indigenous male leaders of the Kenilworth-Parkside Community as they reach for higher levels in career, education, and personal development.

· NatureFest engages youth and families from economically stressed communities in outdoor and nature-based experiences in order to increase their time together for physical and mental wellness and bonding.
