MBK Communities share and use data for decision-making, improving practices, accelerating outcomes and tracking progress for long-term sustainability. Gathering and sharing information is an accountability measure – what works, what doesn’t and uncovering gaps is essential in providing quality services to boys and young men of color and modifying those strategies when necessary.
