Greater Orlando CARES Mentoring

Greater Orlando CARES (GO CARES), one of sixty affiliates of National CARES Mentoring Movement, is committed to improving the lives of young people. Our mission is to enrich the lives of underserved children. While we agree and understand that equality of life is for all children, we are dealing with the demographics most at risk. We fulfill our mission by using the low-cost, high-impact group-mentoring model to nurture under-resourced children, cultivate their self-esteem, increase their academic achievement, and develop their communication, problem-solving and other life skills.

The initiatives used by GO CARES to help fulfill our mission require funding from supporters like you. These programs include:

Mentor Recruiting
Mentor Developmental Training
- Routine programs throughout the central Florida region to fulfill our core mission.  We work in conjunction with our partner organizations to direct able and stable men/women to serve as mentors for young students.

Jazz in the Hills
- Jazz Educational Day is a free, outdoor celebration of music education, entertainment, and enrichment focused on developing and mentoring participating students in the Central Florida area.

- Our annual Jazzy Chic Reception serves as the signature fundraising event to assist the mission of GO CARES in mentor recruiting and connecting students to enriched learning and development.

Thanks in advance for your generous donation.  No amount is too small to help Secure a Generation!
