Transforming the lives of Black children with mentoring

To date, National CARES has recruited more than 150,000 mentors of color, and served more than 250,000 children.

National CARES Mentoring is a pioneering, community-mobilization initiative, anchored by 58 local CARES Affiliates across 26 states, that directly addresses the life-shredding effects of intergenerational Black poverty and lays a blueprint for community recovery.

They are the only organization providing holistic programming on a national scale to undergird and advance impoverished Black children, and the nation’s recognized leader in the recruitment, training, and engagement of African American mentors. It is the mission of the National CARES Mentoring Movement to secure and transform the lives of Black children by inspiring, recruiting, and mobilizing masses of caring Black men and women to mentor and nourish them.

You have the power to be a peacemaker

100% of your donation will go to the work of ending gun violence and mass incarceration.

LIVE FREE works to build a society free of economic oppression, racism, and discrimination in which every person lives in a safe and healthy environment, is respected and included, and has agency over the decisions that shape their lives.

We can live in a world where people of color aren't lost to gun violence and incarceration by ensuring that sheriffs, prosecutors, police chiefs, mayors, city council members, and county commissioners are held accountable as allies, not obstacles, to reform.
