My Brothers Keepers is about to start!

AVillage is proud to announce that it will undertake it's own model of the "My Brothers Keeper" Program, AVillage is a work-site for the summer youth employment program "A-Light" our work-site has 9 students, five young men and four young ladies. AVillage has decided to take the five young men and start the "My Brothers Keepers Program" I'm sure this program will grow.

After working the last 3 weeks with these young men my heart goes out to them. I can't let them fail. I feel obligated to help them succeed. I'm proud of them, for three week we've been work on a history project and these young people has did an awesome job, they are blessed to have the opportunity to work with a historian from Siena College, Mr. Francis Butler, studying African American History. 

Because of the odds facing our young men of color, AVillage will work hard to lead our young men down a different path, it's going to take all of us to make this program a success, nothing else is acceptable, failure is not an option.
