The Community of Learning and Practice was conceived to achieve the following objectives:


Address the need for continuous learning, development, and impact

from national leaders in this space and local community leaders who are advancing equity and opportunities for boys and young men of color.

Create common knowledge and shared understanding

of the skills, talents, partnerships, and resources required to implement a successful, result-driven, and impactful local MBK initiative with a high degree of excellence and integrity.

We want to acknowledge the following partners who shared their expertise and knowledge with MBK Community leaders: National League of Cities, Bloomberg Associates, PolicyLink and Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, StriveTogether, Thrive Chicago and Becoming A Man – Youth Guidance, Los Angeles County Division of Youth Diversion and Development, and Black Family Development. 

If you have an idea for a future Community of Learning and Practice topic, please share it with us.  We greatly value your feedback and recommendations. Please contact Jared Brown directly at [email protected].  Also, feel free to share these learning online meetings with members of your collaborative table working with you on advancing equity and opportunities for boys and young men of color. 

Support MBK Alliance and stay informed about our work.
