My Brother's Keeper (MBK) Orange County

Launched by President Barack Obama in 2014, the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Community Challenge encourages communities to implement a coherent cradle-to-college-and-career strategy for improving the life outcomes of all young people to ensure that they can reach their full potential, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or the circumstances into which they are born.

In response to the President’s challenge, MBK Orange County adopted the following 3 priority areas for Orange County:

1. Ensuring all youth graduate from high school
2. Ensuring all youth complete post-secondary education or training
3. Ensuring all youth out of school are employed

In addition, the guiding framework of MBK Orange County is one that promotes Racial and Ethnic Equity + Social Inclusion. MBK Orange County will work to ensure that distinct groups of people are not excluded from access to programs and initiatives, basic security and human rights. This includes indigenous peoples; people of African descent; women; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons; youth; and people with disabilities.
