My Brother's Keeper
My Brother’s Keeper is a program to encourage and guide our youth’s transition from boy into manhood in a way that transforms and encourages them to make healthy choices. This program was developed in direct response to a tragedy surrounding the events that led to the incarceration of one of our youth. We realized there were missed opportunities to intervene and re-direct the path of this individual, along with many other young people, who have ruined their lives by making poor decisions.
We recognize that our youth need caring adults and mentors who are aware of the constant battle against negative peer pressure youth face daily. My Brother’s Keeper is run by dedicated caring adult volunteers who are willing to stand with and mentor our young men. The mentors invest in our young men by acknowledging the youth’s actions and thoughts, developing personal relationships with the youth to help them set and accomplish goals, and teaching them how to be successful leaders.
