#OTGYpsi: Washtenaw Chapter Of My Brother's Keeper Guides Kids To A Brighter Future

Mar 20, 2019

During the Obama administration, a new program called "My Brother's Keeper" was established to assist young people of color in their education and potential career paths.  Washtenaw County was the first county in the U.S. to jump on this new mission.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg hear all about the Washtenaw County chapter of My Brother's Keeper from Shamar Herron, who sits on its planning committee.
