My Brother’s Keeper Community Challenge Local Action Plan

On May 26, 2015, the City of New Orleans released its local action plan as part of President Obama's My Brother's Keeper Community Challenge - the final step of the initial phase of a challenge issued by the President in September 2014 that encourages communities to implement a coherent cradle-to-college-and-career strategy for improving the life outcomes of all young people to ensure that they can reach their full potential, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or the circumstances into which they are born. Leveraging the work of NOLA FOR LIFE and the Mayor’s Economic Opportunity Strategy, the City of New Orleans last year joined a network of nearly 200 cities, counties, and tribal nations from 43 states across the country committed to investing in the lives of black men and boys.
