While he was serving as running backs coach for the Green Bay Packers in the 1990’s, Harry Sydney noticed a problem in the community, a lack of mentors for men. After stepping away from coaching, Sydney founded My Brother’s Keeper in 2003 to help troubled boys and men better deal with adversity and avoid drama. The organization receives cases from the state and serves Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Marinette, and Oconto Counties. Sydney says he founded My Brother’s Keeper because he felt men weren’t doing their jobs in the area and that he wants to provide guidance he wishes he could have had.
Telling men what they need to hear, not what they want to hear is a core part of the organization, as well as the principles of integrity and respect to influence better decision making. For more information on the services provided or to schedule an appointment you can visit My Brother’s Keeper’s website.
