Be Present to Get Presence
Our goal is to help local school and school district professional make the connection between relationships, attendance, and educational equity. This webinar builds from learnings from the My Brother’s Keeper (MBKA) Success Mentors Program, a successful, evidence-based mentoring program that promotes attendance by building a sense of belonging and responding to student absences quickly with a strengths-based, relationships-first response, and discusses how schools might adapt this model to our current realities in 2021.

3. Help youth overcome personal and/or institutional obstacles
