From the City of Sanford

The City of Sanford invites the public to tune in to the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Advisory Board and learn about the MBK 100 Mentor program. Mentors will meet bi-monthly where 100 students in grades 8-12 will get together for an activity-filled day centered on three core focuses: Life Skills, Career Readiness, and Community Empowerment.

MBK is the local initiative that is affiliated with the Obama Foundation and the National MBK Alliance that leads a cross-sector national call to action. These organizations are focused on building safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear pathways to opportunity. Sanford is one of approximately 250 cities across the nation that took the pledge to become a My Brother’s Keeper community.

Join the workshop on Thursday, October 15th and 29th 2020 from 6:00 -7:00PM EST to learn more about the MBK 100 Mentors program, how you can get involved and help make a difference in the lives of young men of color.
