MBK Framework - Collaboration: If You Want to Go Far, Go Together
MBK Communities intentionally include diverse voices with various levels of influence to build community ownership around conditions for boys and young men of color. Cross sector groups share decision-making with boys and young men of color, corporations, small businesses, non-profits, community leaders, government agencies, elected officials and school districts. These groups commit to share resources and influence to improve the lives of boys and young men of color.
Local System Leader Commitment
Local system leaders identify a process for sustaining the Local Action Plan across milestones.
Boys and Young Men of Color
Boys and young men of color representatives, youth voices and community leaders have decision-making power in the MBK work.
Engagement with Local Partners
Several entities (school districts, non-profits, corporations, clergy, system leaders, philanthropy) make public efforts and declarations to collaborate toward boys and young men of color equity and commit to an action plan.
