WASHINGTON — President Obama will announce details for what he is dubbing his "My Brother's Keeper" initiative on Thursday, a new government partnership with businesses and philanthropic organizations that he hopes will help high-risk minority men gain the skills they need to succeed as adults and stay out of jail, USA Today reports.



Obama, who will unveil the initiative at an afternoon event at the White House, wants to adopt best practices from communities throughout the country where businesses and foundations are already working together to mentor young minority men.
