Every child should have the opportunity to succeed regardless of who they are, where they come from, or the circumstances into which they were born. My Brother’s Keeper Baltimore (MBK)
was created to address the opportunity gaps facing our city’s young men of color. Throughout the 2015-16 school year, Baltimore City Public Schools is supporting this initiative by using a “cradle to career” approach intended to build social capital, self-confidence, create dedicated supports, and provide post-secondary opportunities within our school communities. When children experience consistent support and guidance in their lives, they achieve in the form of better school attendance, increased likelihood of going on to higher education, and maintain better attitudes toward school.
