My Brothers' Keeper (Mentoring Initiative)


Aloha President Obama,
I am an educator in Hawaii and I am currently taking an online course entitled, Social and Emotional Learning. Within the course I saw a video about your initiative program--"My Brothers' Keeper." Anytime you are on the island of 'Oahu, please try to make a point to visit my students, my colleagues, my school community, and myself at Alvah Scott Elementary in Aiea. I would welcome you to speak about this initiative and to help promote mentoring and creating a more positive school climate and culture. It might be a long shot or a dream, but I can have hope and believe.

Mahalo Nui Loa,
Alena Wong
