My Brother’s Keeper What Works Showcase

Federal/Nonprofit/ Child Welfare/ 2016/

On October 17th, 2016, Results for America co-hosted an event at the White House along with the White House Office of Social Innovation, My Brother’s Keeper, the U.S. Department of Education, the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation in order to highlight what works to better serve young people, including boys and young men of color. The inaugural My Brother’s Keeper What Works Showcase featured more than 30 leading-edge, results-driven solutions that are helping young people, including boys and young men of color, achieve their full potential.

By partnering with these leading organizations, RFA continues its mission to work with decision-makers at all levels of government to accelerate their use of evidence and data, making investing in what works the “new normal.”

The event was also featured in the Washington Post, which highlighted the focus of My Brother’s Keeper on the use of data and evidence in its programs.

To learn more about cutting-edge, data-driven solutions highlighted at the event, you can watch the event livestream below, or read the White House blog post on the event, co-authored by Michael Smith and Dave Wilkinson, on the White House website.
