become a mentor
We are losing our future, one child at a time, which is why the CARES movement is crucial. Consider the following…
In some cities, only 18% of Black boys graduate from high school.
57% of Black fourth graders are functionally illiterate.
2.4 million Black children have a parent in prison.
HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death of young Black women.
Homicide is the leading cause of death of young Black men.
Every day more than 1,000 Black teenagers are arrested.
Behind all the harsh numbers are youngsters who are the real-world consequences of broken educational systems, broken homes, and broken communities. By working together, we can void these dire statistics.
