Graduate from high school ready for college and career;
Complete postsecondary education or training;

Grow up in safe communities and get a second chance if they make a mistake.


In addition to supporting the six milestones set at the national level, New York’s MBK initiative is also committed to:

Ensuring equitable access to high quality schools and programs;
Expanding prevention, early warning, and intervention services;
Using differentiated approaches based on need and culture;
Responding to structural and institutional racism;
Making comprehensive and coordinated support services widely available; and
Engaging families and communities in a trusted and respectful way.
