Mission, Vision, Values

Empowering Multiple Generations. Building Community. Shaping Innovative Change.  


Mission: Washtenaw County My Brother’s Keeper (WMBK) exists to impact boys and men of color (ages 0-25) by empowering multiple generations to build community, and using innovative means to change narratives, practices, and policies, resulting in improved outcomes for young men and boys of color in Washtenaw County.

Vision: Washtenaw County will be a place where boys and young men of color thrive- having full access and support to educational and economic opportunities, strong support and care from an intergenerational community of men of color, and are positively acknowledged by the community at large.


Our Core Values

Intergenerational Work - We ensure multiple generations work together to build the future.

“I See You” - We see each boy and young man of color as an individual that’s important to our community.

Support - We provide strong support and care for boys and young men color.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

- Barack Obama
