Our 44th President recently collaborated with Steph Curry and Chance the Rapper as part of his “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative. The purpose of the organization is to mentor and create opportunities for young men of color that they normally would not have access to. You can hear him speak to this in new ad for MBK:
“I want you to know you matter. There’s nothing, not a single thing, that’s more important to the future of America than whether or not young people all across this country can achieve their dreams.”
Although he did take some time to enjoy life (as we all should) after his presidency, he is back at work helping young men secure their futures.
