The Brotherhood would like to re-open the Kenwood School Store that would sell school supplies to the entire school population. This venture would teach the students the power of adolescent economics. The members would learn: how to manage inventory, accounting skills, responsibility of having a work schedule. Managing the school store would help develop a work ethic and skills for adolescent males that currently do not posses workable skills. I am a guidance counselor and the coordinator for The Brotherhood male leadership organization at Kenwood Academy in Chicago. Kenwood Academy is an inner school within the Chicago Public Schools system (CPS). Over fifty-five percent of our students are recipients of the free/reduced lunch program. The sole purpose of this after school mentoring group is to improve the graduation rate of African American and Hispanic American males within the Chicago Public School system. Currently only thirty-nine percent of males of color graduate from CPS. The Brotherhood would need an inventory of school supplies to sell in the school store. The supplies should consist of pens, pencils, loose leaf notebook paper, spiral notebooks, hardback notebooks, markers, calculators, erasers, scissors, correction pens, correction fluid (white-out), rulers, blank computer diskettes, and RW cd's. Re-opening and managing the school store would teach students skills for employment. It also would serve as a fundraiser for the expenses incurred by The Brotherhood to attend field trips and college tours. The profits would be divided between Kenwood Academy and The Brotherhood male leadership organization.
