MBK Nashville accepted the MBK Community Challenge to improve the lives of boys and young men of color (BYMOC) in 2014. MBK Nashville is reorganizing their community's social infrastructure to support their mission of helping BYMOC in their community to achieve. Their goal is to mirror the national MBK network on a local level, providing multiple opportunities for community partners to collaborate, access resources and build capacity. In 2018, MBK Nashville was selected as an MBK Community to Watch, and they are focused on all six MBK milestones.
