MBK Alliance + MENTOR

President Obama’s Mentoring Legacy

Since the launch of My Brother’s Keeper in 2014, and subsequently, the MBK Alliance in 2015, MENTOR has been a critical partner in the effort to improve life outcomes for boys and young men of color. Together, MBK Alliance and MENTOR sponsored the creation of a guidebook “Guide to Mentoring Boys and Young Men of Color,” which features best practices and successful programs that support boys and young men of color. Additionally, MBK Alliance and MENTOR launched a webinar series disseminating knowledge and best-practices across the field.

As MBK Alliance’s work continues as an initiative of the Obama Foundation, mentorship will remain a key pillar of the My Brother’s Keeper effort.
