Susan Taylor, founder & CEO of National CARES Mentoring Movement, narrated and led a powerful discussion about mentoring at My Brothers Keeper event (MBK) in Oakland. The event was held in February 2019.
Former President Barack Obama attended the first national gathering of the Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance that supports boys and young men of color.
Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper five years ago, following the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida that drew national attention, “to build safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear paths to opportunity – with a focus on encouraging mentorship and reducing youth violence.”
