Empowering Young People to Be a Better Version of Themselves

In September 2014, President Obama issued a challenge to cities, towns, counties and tribes across the country to become “MBK Communities.” This challenge represents a call to action for all members of our communities, men in particular, as they often sit at the intersection of many of the vital forces and structural components needed to enact sustainable change. 

Get in touch today to learn more about how the My Brother's Keeper Alliance South Carolina is accepting the challenge to make a difference in communities throughout South Carolina.
