My Brother's Keeper Wake County

PREPARING THE FUTURE LEADERS OF TOMORROW TODAY.

“We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to achieve their dreams, regardless of their race, gender, or socioeconomic status.” ~ My Brother’s Keeper Alliance

President Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper 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. In 2015 the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance) was launched, inspired by My Brother’s Keeper, to scale and sustain this mission. In late 2017, MBK Alliance became an initiative of the Obama Foundation. Within the Obama Foundation, MBK Alliance focuses on building safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear pathways to opportunity.

In 2018, EVOLVE Mentoring launched the MBK Initiative in Wake County to support youth, young adults and organizations. EVOLVE Mentoring’s goal is to be a Quarterback organization to support and build a collaborative community for those working to make an impact in the lives of Black, Latinx and Native American boys and young men.
