My Brother's Keeper Communities Challenge

About The My Brother's Keeper Community Challenge

The My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge is a national call to action for communities (cities, counties, and Tribal Nations) to develop and execute a cradle-to-college and career strategy to improve life outcomes for all youth, consistent with the goals and recommendations of the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Task Force’s May 28, 2014 report, to ensure that all young people can achieve their full potential regardless of who they are, where they come from, or the circumstances into which they are born.

By accepting the My Brother's Keeper Community Challenge, communities commit to convene key stakeholders to get involved locally, to implement proven strategies for improving the life outcomes of young people, to measure their successes and setbacks, and to share their plans to help communities learn from one another.

The White House, the U.S. Department of Education, and The National Convening Council, a program of the New Venture Fund, are launching the My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge. To find out more about the NCC, please see
