My Brother's Keeper

In 2014, President Obama established the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Task Force at the federal level. The Task Force was an interagency effort focused on closing and eliminating the opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color so that all young people have the chance to reach their full potential.

Evaluation & Research

CHSR worked with the Albany schools to identify performance measures to track both implementation fidelity and outcomes of the MBKCG initiative. The evaluation protocol includes assessing literacy achievement for students in prekindergarten through grade 3, tracking the achievement gap between students of color and their peers, as well as examining frequency and outcomes of Code of Conduct violations in Priority Schools.
