In the President’s remarks about My Brother’s Keeper, his initiative to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color, he said it was all about “Helping more of our young people stay on track. Providing the support they need to think more broadly about their future. Building on what works—when it works, in those critical life-changing moments.”
But what does “on track” look like for young males of color? What are the opportunity gaps they face ?
These are just some of the questions that foundations who have been working on these issues have been trying to answer and several have refined a way to think about and conceptualize positive outcomes for this population.
At the upcoming NCG program California’s Tomorrow: A Framework for Improving the Lives of Young Males of Color, members can gain a better understanding of the key outcomes that lead to a successful and healthy life for young males; learn why there is a need to focus on race, gender and geography to improve the lives of populations experiencing disparities; and hear more about what your colleagues in the Executive Alliance, a group of 40 foundations—including a number of NCG members focused on positive outcomes for males of color
