MBK LogoThe leaders of New Rochelle’s My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) initiative have been invited to attend an MBK National Summit at the White House with President Obama.  New Rochelle will be represented by City Council Member Jared Rice and NRHS Principal Reggie Richardson.

Since accepting the MBK challenge last April, a wide-ranging partnership of local not-for-profits, educators, government officials, and volunteers has worked to expand opportunities for children and young adults, particularly boys of color.  Just take a look at these accomplishments and activities.  I am proud of what MBK New Ro has achieved so far, and gratified by the well-deserved national recognition.

There’s more about the White House event in this press release and visit the MBK New Ro website to learn about the program itself.
