In 2014, President Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper to address the persistent opportunity gaps boys and young men of color face and to ensure all young people can reach their full potential. Today, the MBK Alliance works to unleash the power of communities working together to solve problems for boys and young men of color, at a level to improve real-life outcomes. They believe communities are the unit of change to realize improved life outcomes for our boys.
In 2023, the MBK Alliance will identify 2 - 3 communities that have proven impact in one of the 6 MBK Milestones (See Page 16 for the 6 MBK Milestones).
