2018 My Brother's Keeper Symposium

The New York State Education Department hosted the 2018 New York State My Brother's Keeper (MBK) Symposium on April 27-28 in Albany. More than 600 students, parents, educational leaders, and citizens came together to discuss successful strategies, share resources, receive expert training, and hear directly from students about the impact that MBK has had on their lives. The event also included national experts in the field of human and child development who focused on how to ensure boys and young men of color are given opportunities to succeed in school and life.

At the 2018 Symposium, NYSED named the inaugural class of My Brother's Keeper (MBK) Fellows Program. The 2018 MBK Fellows were provided with a mentor from the NYSMBK Community Network and gained authentic leadership development opportunities at school, community, and state levels.
