My Brother’s Keeper Wake County, NC
My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) is an initiative launched by President Barack Obama in 2014 to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential.
There are thousands of nonprofit organizations in the Triangle area with a large number aimed at improving the lives of youth and young adults. The problem is that most are working alone in silos which produces replicated work with minimal resources for a large population of people in need. MBK Wake County is a “Quarterback” organization assisting with collaboration and capacity building of our partners. Our goal is to bring back the community mentality that says, “It takes a village”.
MBK Wake County works with organizations and programs serving as allies of Black, Brown, Indigenous youth and young adults in Wake County, North Carolina. We also host workshops, trainings, support and community building Lunch & Learns. We foster engaging discussions about the state of our community and need to support youth and young adults especially boys and young men of color.
Come visit our library of culturally relevant books to encourage reading for youth and framework books that address issues facing youth development for organization leaders.
