‘My Brother’s Keeper’


On Monday, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, will help launch the White House’s “My Brother’s Keeper” program in Warren. My Brother’s Keeper, created by President Barack Obama, is a local initiative to help prepare students for college and career readiness.

During a 10:45 a.m. kick-off event at Kent State University at Trumbull, Brown and Ryan will be joined by Mahoning Valley mentors and mentees. The My Brother’s Keeper initiative works to connect students with community leaders through mentoring relationships and educational events. This program is aligned with the milestones of the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative: to ensure that all youth receive a quality high-school education and graduate with the skills and tools needed to advance to postsecondary education or training.
