COMMUNITY CHALLENGE ROLLOUT
A Federal Initiative for Local Action
The My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Community Challenge issued by the White House encourages communities to implement a cradle-to-college-and-career strategy intended to improve the outcomes for young people of color.
The City of South Bend, assisted by community partners, chose to focus on reaching three priority milestones: Getting a healthy start & entering school ready to learn; Keeping kids on track & giving them second chances; and Successfully entering the workforce.
As the anchor organization, Beacon Health System will network and work with MBK community partners to complete the mission of closing opportunity gaps for boys and young men of color. Beacon Health System has committed to spearheading the development and implementation of data driven outcomes, ensuring efficiency and facilitating analysis, management, and presentation of data.
