National Mentoring Movement for Students in Marginalized Black Communities

The National CARES Mentoring Movement is pioneering new paths forward that enhance the education of students in marginalized Black communities and underresourced schools. Anchored by a 58 US-city affiliate network, National CARES provides children and low-income parents with the emotional, social, academic, and career-readiness support they need in order to become self-sustaining, successful contributors to their family, community, and society.

CARES’ 32-week curricula are built to help children heal the multiple traumas of impoverishment and override the debilitating effects that unaddressed will be lifelong. CARES’ evidenced-based initiatives instill hope, critical thinking skills, racial pride, and love for learning and wellness in mind, body, and spirit. Young ones come to understand that they are greater than their greatest challenges, as they share their stories and heal together, supported by trained psychologists, social workers, and volunteer mentors in CARES’ wide-spreading Wellness Mentoring Circles. Youth learn to transform their thinking and behaviors. They learn how to love themselves, as well as one another, and prepare for success in school, careers, and life.
