The Talk to a brother lesson helps members learn more about how to approach a brother who needs help. This lesson is important in helping members be better prepared to assist their brothers. One of the most common dynamics in brotherhood is seeing that someone needs help, but not necessarily knowing what to do or say. The goal of this lesson is to give members tools to make seeking help more approachable for their brothers.
