My Brother's Keeper Alliance

MBK Impact Narrative

In 2018, The Obama Foundation launched the My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge Competition (MBKCCC) to identify and invest in select communities making steady progress in improving the lives of boys and young men of color (BYMOC). The Foundation awarded two-year grants to 19 Competition winners across 10 states and Puerto Rico: 10 Impact Communities, five National Seed Communities, and four Chicago Seed Communities. The vital important work of these 19 grantees serve as national models for reducing youth violence and growing effective mentorship programs.
