MBK Alliance Seeks Community Based Solutions


Read this PND article on My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, an initiative of the Obama Foundation, and the launch of its MBK Community Challenge Competition.

In March, the alliance will send a request for proposals to the nearly two hundred and fifty communities that accepted President Barack Obama’s 2014 MBK Community Challenge. Communities applying through the RFP process will be asked to choose an evidence-based model related to youth violence prevention or mentoring that they would like to replicate or scale over the next two years, and the winning communities will be provided with experts to support planning, implementation, and infrastructure development.
