"President Obama established My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) in February 2014 to address persistent opportunity gaps facing boys and young men of color and to ensure all youth can reach their full potential. The MBK Alliance was launched as an independent, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) entity in 2015 to scale and sustain this critical mission." ~ Breaking Barriers Buffalo

This is a great free program to help young men of color grow into leaders.  They will benefit from the support of mentors and other men of color here in Buffalo.  I've been at one of their inaugural events and it was such a beautiful sight!  President Barak Obama started this program under his presidency.

"In too many communities, too many young men of color are left behind and seen only as objects of fear. Through initiatives like My Brother's Keeper, I'm personally committed to changing both perception and reality." ~ Barack Obama
