My Brother's Keeper (MBK) is a community challenge started by President Obama encouraging city leaders, including San Antonio Mayor Ivy R. Taylor, to implement a coherent life-impact strategy. This national initiative is designed to help boys and men of color, including African American, Hispanic, Native American, and all non-white males reach their full potential regardless of life's circumstances.
Locally, MBK will coordinate with other strategies that connect youth with opportunity and help young people build healthy relationships with themselves, their families and their community.
“Our vision for My Brother’s Keeper in San Antonio is to encourage young men of color to take advantage of the opportunities life presents. We have challenging neighborhoods in our city, but we’re working hard to change this narrative and make San Antonio a place with expectations that also provides second chances.”
– MAYOR IVY R. TAYLOR
