Tell Us: How Are You Your Brother's Keeper?

Last year, the President launched the My Brother's Keeper initiative to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential.

This Sunday, June 21, Discovery Channel and OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will air RISE: The Promise of My Brother’s Keeper — a documentary that explores the lives of the boys and young men of color from four programs across the U.S. that are living the principles of the My Brother’s Keeper initiative. (Discovery is hosting a hub of info related to the documentary and initiative at, and is premiering the documentary on Facebook before Sunday’s on-air debut.)

Share with us how you are your brother's keeper — whether you're tutoring a young person at a local high school, or helping them with their college application. Or share a simple story of how someone helped you get a leg up at an early age, or how someone you looked up to helped you get ahead.

Make sure to also join the conversation online and share your stories or videos on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the hashtag #MyBrothersKeeper — and we'll feature some of your stories on and White House social media channels over the coming days.

Thank You
