The Brotherhood Alliance for Science and Education (BASE) is a mentorship program devoted to increasing the number of underrepresented minority males advancing through grade school. The BASE program is guided by a threefold vision. First, the BASE program attempts to provide the young men and their parents a snapshot of higher education, professional development, and health careers, and affirm them as attainable and worthwhile goals. Secondly, BASE is driven to foster and develop personal relationships among members of the pipeline, those beyond, and the mentors that serve them in order to provide a personal source of guidance and support at each level. Third, the BASE program intends to instill the importance of community service and empowerment in both our mentors and mentees. The mentorship program consists of weekly 4 hr sessions broken into two parts: 2hr social activity (movies, video games, cooking, basketball, etc.). In addition, the young men of the program are involved in longitudinal community service activities that they coordinate. Ultimately, the program attempts to increase the number of underrepresented minority males in higher education and foster a sense of community empowerment through service.
