Engaging the Community (#SXSWMBK)

Monday, March 6th 1:30 - 3:30pm (Hilton Austin Downtown, Room 408)

My Brother’s Keeper (MBK), is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to build ladders of opportunity and unlock the full potential of our youth, specifically young men and women of color. It takes a community to raise a child from Cradle-to-Career. This problem solver session will showcase innovative and creative strategies for community engagement as well as emerging best practices to open gates of opportunity.
