Business DescriptionMy Brother’s Keeper, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization and is not affiliated with any religious organization. My Brother’s Keeper, Inc. is a mentoring program designed to help boys and men to overcome obstacles they face to become productive members in our community. My Brother’s Keeper, Inc. was founded in 2003 (20 years) by Harry F. Sydney, to help boys and men living in Brown County deal with life’s challenges. The mission is to provide mentoring service with “Straight Talk - Sound Direction” to individuals that lack necessary life coping skills. Participants range from boys and men ages 8-65 identified by the schools, courts, and parents struggling with defining and achieving realistic goals. The program provides an effective mentoring service. Research shows that mentoring is an effective tool to reach persons in need of self-direction and in making proper life choices. They experience positive benefits that include better attendance and attitude at school and work; understanding and knowing the value of higher education; and reducing negative behaviors with increasing positive social attitudes and relationships. The primary goal of My Brother’s Keeper is to help males in Brown County and surrounding areas develop the skills they need to improve the quality of their lives, build better relationships and become more productive members of our community. A key to effective mentoring is trust, where the individual knows he can speak his mind without being judged or his confidence violated; where he can listen to what he needs to hear, not just what he wants to hear. My Brother’s Keeper has been that trusted mentor for numerous men and boys since its inception.
