A place of belonging for Black youth

Who we are

Black Excellence in action

Brown Like Me is a place of belonging for Black youth in Idaho’s Treasure Valley.

In a region where our Black children are often the minority in their schools, activities, the grocery store, and even at home, Brown Like Me delivers programming that allows them to see the beauty of being Black.

Monthly club meetings and other regular events provide our youth with activities that build self-esteem and expose them to Black culture, connect them to Black mentors and community leaders, and, just as important, deliver opportunities to just be around friends who look like them.

Additionally, we offer a forum for parents of Black youth to share their experiences in a safe setting, and for adoptive parents to learn about the importance of cultivating ties to their child’s culture.
