TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

President Obama is expected to make an announcement today about a new initiative, ‘My Brother's Keeper' designed to help young minority men stay out of trouble and in the classroom.

Pima Community College is the site for the Pima County Juvenile Court to host a career day, in keeping with the President's new initiative. 

Children involved in the Juvenile Court system will have an opportunity to learn about different careers on campus; many of the children who will be at this career day believe that they will not be able to attend college.  For career day organizers they say this is just not the case. 

Attending college will be one of the aspects the President is expected to feature in his message today.  President Obama promised during his State of the Union speech that this program would be launched this year. 

According to the White House ‘My Brother's Keeper' is about taking steps to keep young minority men in school and out of the criminal justice system. 

There are two main parts to this new program – first is business and foundations will join together to make sure children arrive at school ready to learn; second is a new effort to investigate what programs help young minority males succeed.

Pima County Juvenile Court has teamed up with Pima Community College since 2006 for this career day.
