One year after the launch of My Brother's Keeper (MBK) -- a White House initiative to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color -- the My Brother's Keeper Task Force released this progress report to the President. Efforts were organized along three focus areas: place-based state and local engagement, private-sector action, and public policy review and reform.
Nearly 200 cities, counties, and tribal nations from 43 states accepted the MBK Community Challenge and are developing cradle-to-college-and-career action plans.
MBK Communities that accept the Challenge can receive technical assistance from federal agencies and nonprofits in the fields of education, health, and justice.
More than $300 million in grants and in-kind resources have been committed by foundations, businesses, and social enterprises to advance the mission of MBK, including investments in safe and effective schools, mentoring programs, and juvenile justice reforms.
The President's 2016 budget proposes new investments to expand high-quality child care and access to preschool, $3 million to increase job opportunities for disconnected youth, and free community college for responsible students.
