Brotherhood Sisterhood Summit

2023 Brotherhood Sisterhood Summit
Saturday, February 4 | 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
YES Prep Southside Secondary

This year, YES Prep moved the summit to the beginning of February, so that the Brotherhood Sisterhood Summit could kick off our Black History Month celebrations across the district as opposed to wrapping it up at the end of February like in years past.

This year’s summit is being held on Saturday, February 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at YES Prep Southside Secondary, with the theme The Celebration Will Be Televised. Black/African American students and staff will be able to show up and celebrate the positive, rich and dynamic Black culture in all ways possible. Returning as co-leads of the summit: Carnetta Griffin, manager of Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE); and TeRon Simmons, behavior support specialist at YES Prep Southside Secondary.

The summit co-leads are Te'Ron Simmons, Behavior Support Specialist with YES Prep Southside Secondary, and Carnetta Griffin, Manager of ACE.

Students who attend the summit can expect the following:

  • Breakfast and lunch
  • Sessions on celebrating Black culture
  • Networking with YES Prep students and staff from across the district, as well as community guest speakers
  • Senior recognition and distribution of heritage stoles for graduation
  • Swag 
  • Selfie stations
