Arbor Brothers is pleased to announce the nine constituents of its 2017 grants portfolio, which include three new grantees: BEAM Math, CO-OP, & Hudson Link, and its first ever alumni grantee, All Our Kin. These groups join five returning incumbents: CARA, Power of Two, Roots & Wings, ScriptEd and The Brotherhood / Sister Sol. By partnering with these promising second-stage nonprofits to replace missing rungs in the “opportunity ladder”, Arbor Brothers aims to empower young people and their families to achieve economic self-sufficiency.
Jessica Sager, the current CEO of AB’s first ever Alumni Grantee All Our Kin, joins 13 other Ashoka Fellows as part of the largest network of social entrepreneurs worldwide. Congratulations!
