National CARES Mentoring Movement family is profoundly grateful for the love, wisdom and support Dr. Maya Angelou showed us from the very beginning. From writing our pledge to young people, to reading it with affiliates all across the country, to spending time with us in what became her final interview on May 19th, we are forever a better and stronger organization, people and world because she loved us so well.

Why Mentor?

Because this is our state of emergency today:
 
  • Of all Black fourth-graders, 58% are functionally illiterate.
  • In some cities, 80% of our boys drop out before finishing high school.
  • Every day 1,000 Black children are arrested.
  • 1 in every 8 African American males ages 25-29 is incarcerated.
  • The number one cause of death for our boys is homicide.
