It is often said that our children are the future. The youth that we are raising today will help shape the world that we live in tomorrow. However, in some areas throughout the nation, and even right here in our own backyards, the youth are being overlooked and neglected. At My Brother’s Keeper, we strive to help the youth within the 21229 communities through youth programs to help create a better today and tomorrow. While some might not believe youth programs are beneficial, these programs are known to help children in several different ways.
- Youth programs help to teach and develop social skills within children and their peers. These social skills will be able to help development as children grow older and can help improve different relationships throughout their life, including work, family, and romantic relationships.
- Performance within an education setting is known to improve in children who are involved with youth programs. They are also more likely to behave better in their home setting.
- Children involved with youth programs will develop a better sense of self as well as a more positive self esteem.
- Children who have been involved in youth programs are better equipped to make positive decisions later on in their life.
My Brother’s Keeper is as strong as our support. Our youth programs are based on community need as well as the grants available to us at the time. As our staff continues to work towards helping the community, outside help by way of donations and volunteers are always welcome! Become a part of something great and help make MBK where hope finds a home.
