My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) engages youth of color ages 15-25 in a visual research series on juvenile justice and violence prevention using youth-led multimedia to inform diverse audience in Long Beach. Young people have the opportunity to research what resources are available for youth who have been involved in the justice system, and how the community of Long Beach can best support youth development. Youth leaders will create various visual products that highlight the findings and recommendations from their assessments.
Youth Reporters will also produce one solution-focused multimedia story on violence prevention and on diverse families who have experienced the criminal justice system so audiences can learn what resources are available for young people and their families when they face the criminal justice system and afterward.
My Brother’s Keeper is a project funded by the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.
