EVOLVE Mentoring Inc.
Founded in 2011, EVOLVE Mentoring Inc. has served youth and young adults in the Triangle area to help with their transition to holistic adulthood through life skills, mentoring, and collaboration with partner organizations area the Triangle. Over the years EVOLVE has served thousands of young men and women through partnerships that foster collective impact and have answered the call to lead the My Brother’s & Sister’s Keeper (MBSK) initiative to help youth and young adults of color in Wake County.
The My Brother’s Keeper initiative was launched by President Barack Obama in 2014 to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential. In 2019, our My Brother’s Keeper initiative in Wake County expanded to be inclusive of girls and young women of color as well. My Brother’s Keeper Wake County is now My Brother’s & Sister’s Keeper!!
There are thousands of nonprofit organizations in the Triangle area with a large number aimed at improving the lives of youth and young adults. The problem is that most are working alone in silos which often produce replicated work done with limited resources to serve the large population of people in need. EVOLVE serves as a “Quarterback” organization for the MBSK initiative assisting organizations (aka, community partners) with collaborations and capacity building support. Our goal is to bring back the community mentality that says, “It takes a village”.
EVOLVE works with area organizations and programs that serve as allies of Black, Brown, Indigenous youth, and young adults living in Wake County, North Carolina. We provide resources, host workshops, training, and community building Lunch & Learns. We foster engaging discussions about the state of our community and the need to support youth and young adults especially those of color.
We invite you to also come visit our library of culturally relevant books to encourage reading for youth in addition to framework books that address issues facing youth development designed for organizational leaders.
Help us rebuild commUNITY and be part of the Solution!
