My Brother's Keeper Task Force Report to the President

0 Comments | Posted

The President's Task Force on My Brother's Keeper, a White House initiative to expand opportunity for boys and young men of color, has released a blueprint for action.

Launched in February with the support of investments totaling $200 million over five years from eleven foundations, the public-private partnership aims to identify and remove the barriers to success in academics and life that many boys and young men of color growing up in poverty face. A ninety-day progress report, My Brother's Keeper Task Force Report to the President (61 pages, PDF), provides a set of initial recommendations to the White House, such as making the status and progress of boys and young men of color and other populations more visible by improving data collection and transparency, and launching a public-private campaign to actively recruit mentors for youth.
