We have powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.
--Mary McLeod Bethune
The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.
The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights and there is no racial hatred or racial discrimination.
Educational Partnership Objectives:
The NAACP Seattle King County is partnering with the KD Hall Foundation's college Ambassador Program (CAP) to develop the inaugural cohort of Youth Chapters. The NAACP is offering a K-12 Educational Partnership for School Districts to implement NAACP Youth Chapters with their schools. These Youth Chapters will learn and implement best practices within diversity & Inclusion, understanding civil rights and holding school assemblies with speakers and interactive sessions around race, culture and understanding their civil rights.
Each school will have a Student Advisor that will be supported by the NAACP Education Committee to help organize and lead each Chapter. The high school teams will help mentor the middle and elementary school chapters through their journey, while gaining experiential learning.
The NAACP will help set up each school's Youth Chapter, provide a blueprint to help school's guide their students, support two assemblies per, in addition to speaker series.
Let's work together to educate our students on racial discrimination, to see it's elimination, and to inspire a more socially and racially conscious youth!
