Houston's youth face many challenges in preparing for productive adulthood. That is is particularly true for young men of color. Many indicators show that his group lags behind others on measures such as high school graduation rates, household income, employment and neighborhood safety. This group is also more likely to have encounters with law enforcement and the justice system. The My Brother's Keeper (MBK) initiative aims to address these inequitable conditions faced by boys and young men of color. MBK originated from the White House in 2014. Recognizing the inequitable conditions that boys and young men of color face throughout their lifetime, a coordinated national movement was launched. Find Out More About My Brother's Keeper

Mexican Institute

The Mexican Institute of Greater Houston (MIGH) is a significant contributor to Community Development because we are increasing our student’s workforce skills so they can opt for better paid jobs. MIGH offers Basic Computer Technology Literacy Education for Adults. It is taught in English and Spanish and reaches parents through the schools attended by their children (K-12). We have been educating at risk LEPs about the benefits of using computers at home and at work, teaching them several software packages. Our programs primarily serve parents (80% woman/20% men) of school-aged children throughout the State of Texas. Carlos J. Lopez, President spoke about their Computer Literacy Courses for Adults.
