My Brother's Keeper
Our S.U.C.C.E.S.S Club Advisor, David Lee Morgan Jr., recently attended a launch of President Barack Obama’s new initiative, “My Brother’s Keeper”. Senator Sherrod Brown was the speaker at the conference who kicked off the event. Morgan was able to be part of a round table discussion at the event and plans to implement this program into our S.U.C.C.E.S.S Club this year.

The main idea behind the My Brother’s Keeper initiative is to unite male students of color with leaders in their community to build relationships and get them involved in educational events around the community. The overall goal of the program is to get students ready for college and beyond.

The six goals of the Challenge are:

  • Getting a Healthy Start and Entering School Ready to Learn;
  • Reading at Grade Level by 3rd Grade;;
  • Graduating from High School Ready for College and Career;
  • Completing Postsecondary Education or Training;
  • Successfully Entering the Workforce
  • Keeping Kids on Track.

"It was an honor to meet so many other community-minded adults throughout Stark County who are committed to mentoring area youth through the 'My Brother's Keeper' initiative,” Morgan said. “We are all grateful to have the support of President Barack Obama and Senator Sherrod Brown in our efforts to mentor and guide our young students throughout high school and into college, or any type of post-secondary learning they choose." We are excited for Morgan to implement this idea during the 2016-2017 school year!
