(Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday that he would continue to work on issues of racial equality and education even after he leaves the White House.

Obama, speaking at an event related to the White House's "My Brother's Keeper" program, said those goals would "remain a mission for me, not just for the rest of my presidency, but for the rest of my life."

"My Brother's Keeper" is an initiative aimed at eliminating various educational and other obstacles facing minority men.
