|iCARE – Youth Mentoring Initiative|
M I S S I O N
Our mission is to inspire and motivate young people to care about their current and future endeavors. We equip young people with enhanced knowledge, experiences, and resources to achieve excellence. iCARE creates an emotional connection and instills the four core traits that will enable youth to build effective relationships and succeed in life.
H I S T O R Y
Founded in 2012 by Mia Carey and Mahlon Carey, iCARE is a non-profit organization based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Through our community involvement, we began to notice an apathetic “who cares” mentality amongst the younger generation. During an informal conversation, we vented about the “kids these days” and realized we were speaking as if they were a lost cause. Since we both have a passion for inspiring youth and to make a difference, we developed a mission to provide a solution for the change that we want to see. Our determination began with the formation of a list of values that we both “care” the most about. As we discussed our core values, we noticed these attributes are pillars of success for most accomplished individuals. These critical four traits: Character, Accountability, Respect, and Esteem are the building blocks for the iCARE program.
“C .A. R. E. C U R R I C U L U M”
We visit local schools to encourage young people to C.A.R.E. In addition, iCARE hosts a monthly “care curriculum” to mentor, inspire and uplift pre-teens and teens ages 8-17. The care curriculum is an informative, interactive and inspirational one hour workshop held within the Atlanta Metro area. We center the curriculum on the four “C.A.R.E Traits” in order to provide young people with the inspiration to think broader, reach higher, and dream bigger.
- Character – Resolve on who you are, take a stand, and make good choices
- Accountability – Doing the right thing and cultivating responsibility
- Respect – Self and Community
- Esteem – Create a positive esteem for self and others
