Resource type: Research Report
The White House |
This is the latest progress report for the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Task Force. Established two years ago when President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum, the coordinated federal effort seeks to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential.
In response to the President’s call to action, nearly 250 communities in all 50 states have accepted the My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge; more than $600 million in private sector and philanthropic grants and in-kind resources and $1 billion in low-interest financing have been committed in alignment with MBK; and new federal policy initiatives, grant programs, and guidance are being implemented to ensure that every child has a clear pathway to success from cradle to college and career.
