In 2014 President Barak Obama created the My Brother's Keeper initiative. In March of that same year, the FWISD Board of Education approved the Pledge by the Council of Great City Schools to better serve FWISD male students of color. In July of that same year, the FWISD Trustees attended the MBK National Town Hall with President Obama in Washington, DC. FWMBK became official in February 2015 at a My Brother's Keeper Community Summit where 14 schools were granted a chapter. Then in May of 2016, the first inaugural MBK class of 15 seniors, were awarded free tailored suits for their graduation and program completion. The program increased in size and Mr. Rickie Clark/STEP was tasked to oversee the expansion and take the movement to new heights. The movement grew in numbers and community involvement. In May of 2017, FWMBK/STEP graduated 51 seniors and awarded them suits. Since then the graduating classes have grown, the movement is now in 37 schools, and has birthed a TV/Radio Show to showcase our students.
