My Brother's Keeper

Men Achieving through Leadership and Engagement
My Brother’s Keeper Initiative—the Successful M.A.L.E. Initiative is a support initiative for WVU men of color.

Once a month, the M.A.L.E. members and facilitators gather together on campus to discuss a variety of topics. A major objective of the Successful M.A.L.E. Initiative is to empower each other to be better men of excellence who are scholarly in academic endeavors, and professional in all manners in life. 

Last year, My Brother's Keeper held a variety of events, including monthly empowerment sessions, movie viewings and discussions, and social events.

Future M.A.L.E. Achievement and Engagement programming may include:
  • M.A.L.E. Achievement Breakfast & Leadership Summit
  • Sponsored conferences
  • Brotherhood Fellowships (movies, bowling, dinner, game nights, athletic activities, etc.)
  • Diversity Achievement Seminars
