Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Director of The Department of Neighborhoods to enter into an agreement with Franklin County Department of Job and Family Services to help coordinate efforts for the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) program.
In 2014 President Obama called on cities, non-profits, and the private sector to collaborate and close opportunity gaps for boys and young men of color (B&YMOC). Columbus was one of the first cities to answer this call. The city and partner organizations brought together more than 500 B&YMOC to ensure that Columbus’ My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) work was grounded in testimony from the target population. Numerous non-profit service providers, schools, and companies have created programs to serve vulnerable youth of color since the launch of the national MBK initiative.
