Seattle CARES Mentoring Movement Partners with the Liberated Village

Thanks to our partnership with Seattle’s Liberated Village, we have expanded our group mentoring program to reach young men and women in grades 7-12.

Mentoring can propel Black youth and other youth of color to greater success in school and in life!

Led by CARES-trained mentors, our group mentoring program meet twice a month, and offer a safe space to talk, share experiences and learn from a supportive role model.

What is the Liberated Village?

Formerly known as Trauma Informed and Restorative Practices (TIRP), the Liberated Village is a community of 30 partners who are working together to implement innovative anti-racist trauma-informed and restorative practices across 55 schools in ten school districts.

By bringing students, families, teachers, school districts, community-based organizations, and local government together, the Liberated Village partners recognize that it takes a community to help children and youth succeed.
