January 30, 2024 – Through a combination of enrichment and support activities, My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) aims to enhance personal growth and academic success among participants. For example, last November’s “All Tied Up” event taught members the essential skill of tying a tie while also facilitating meaningful conversations about the challenges that they may face in their personal, professional and romantic lives.

MBK students can participate in leadership training, earn scholarships, and mentor others via several exclusive programs.

Diplomat Program

The MBK Diplomat program offers students leadership and professional development opportunities, elevating their collegiate experience. This exclusive program, limited to 10 students, involves actively planning, coordinating and supporting MBK-related events. The program provides valuable incentives, including:

  • Priority registration.
  • A book stipend.
  • Travel opportunities.
  • A letter of recommendation.

Scholars Program

Scholarships provide students the opportunity to be debt-free while obtaining a college education. The MBK Scholars program is committed to sponsoring scholarships for eligible MBK students to join Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for junior colleges. Scholars enjoy various incentives, including:

  • Academic enrichment opportunities.
  • Community partnerships with employment prospects.
  • Graduation distinction and regalia.

Mentor Program

The MBK Mentor program operates both on-campus and in the community. It helps members build relationships with faculty and staff members who will provide reference letters for professional possibilities. In the community, mentors serve as guides for third-grade Black males, fulfilling scholarship requirements and community service hours.
