My Brother's Keeper Lyrics Follow
My Brother's Keeper Challenge is a public-private partnership of the United States Federal Government to promote intervention by civic leaders in the lives of young men of color to address their unique challenges and to promote racial justice. The program was initiated in 2014 with sponsorship of the White House, the United States Department of Education, and the National Convening Council. The initiative has obtained pledges by non-profit organizations of $200 million over five years. The initiative is intended to be a call to action for mayors, Native American tribal leaders, county executives, and other municipal leaders to address persistent opportunity gaps for young men of color and help them reach their potential.
The partnership was expanded one-year after program launch with $100 million in additional funding from private entities. Private partners include, but are not limited to: College Board, Citi Foundation, AT&T, Discovery Communications, and Emerson Collective. Youth Guidance's Becoming a Man program is an example of a recipient of funding from the My Brother's Keeper Challenge. The Boys of Color Collaboration is another example, pooling scholars from several universities with backing of the My Brother's Keeper Challenge.
The White House issued a one-year progress report on the My Brother's Keeper Challenge, illustrating the program's organization according to goals of state and local engagement, private sector action, and public policy review and reform. There is an official website for the program.
