Our model of service at My Brother’s Keeper is to have a small dedicated staff assisting and supervising the thousands of volunteers who carry out the work of My Brother’s Keeper.

Our emphasis on empowering volunteers allows them to build personal relationships with those we serve and experience the joy of service. It also creates greater transparency and a stronger sense of investment from our community.
