MBK Challenge Spotlight: Brooklyn
We featured this MBK Challenge spotlight in our February 2018 newsletter
The My Brother's Keeper Boys Who Read, Lead! Partnership is a grant-funded initiative designed to close the literacy gap by improving literacy outcomes for young men and boys of color. Mentors and educators will work in a combination of 16 elementary and middle schools to develop and launch robust literacy programs. Educators will participate in literacy training with literacy specialist Isoke Nia.
This program is structured to build literacy and leadership skills by utilizing culturally relevant literature and mentorship focused on improving elementary and middle school students' reading, critical thinking, and critical discussion skills.
