The Palmview Male Cooperative (PMC) is an out-of-school-time program that involves students of color from varied achievement levels in a 'brotherhood' focused on personal excellence, group accountability, and mutual support. This case study shows how participating in this organization impacts Black and Latina/o student engagement. Overall, the authors argue that framing this organization as a Black and Latina/o 'brotherhood' effectively promotes peer bonding, which builds attachment to the larger school community.
