Partners with The National CARES Mentoring Movement
ATLANTA, GA, November 27, 2019. The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. announces its partnership with the National CARES Mentoring Movement.
The National CARES Mentoring Movement is the largest and most highly regarded national organization in the black mentor-recruitment and training arena serving our vulnerable children. CARES mission is to close the huge gap between the relatively few black mentors and the millions of vulnerable black children in need of mentoring and other wrap-around services.
The sole purpose of National CARES is ending intergenerational poverty among African Americans by ensuring that our children in gravely under-resourced families, communities and schools have access to the emotional, social and academic supports needed to graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college or industrial-training programs and 21st-century careers.
National CARES recruits and trains caring adults and deploys them to schools, literacy- and other academic-support programs, mentoring organizations and juvenile reentry programs, where they serve as mentors, tutors and role models. National CARES is dedicated to ensuring our challenged young avoid gangs, violence, addictions and incarceration.
The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc. is pleased to enter into a partnership with the National CARES organization which closely aligns with the mission and vision of the Coalition.
The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to advocate on behalf of black women and girls to promote leadership development and gender equity in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment.
