We are a non-profit organization. All officers and executive committee members at the local and conference level work on a volunteer basis to defend those who cannot defend themselves.

    Our work does not end there.  Each year we plan a series of community outreach and fundraising events.  We are successful because our members participate and we receive support from the greater community.

     However, it takes more than a great plan; it takes great people to see that plan through.

EDUCATION

The NAACP works to ensure that all disadvantaged students and students of color are on the path to college or a successful career by ensuring access to great teaching, equitable resources, and a challenging curriculum. We are dedicated to eliminating the severe racial inequities that continue to plague our education system. Our ultimate goal is that every student of color receives a quality public education that prepares him or her to be a contributing member of a democracy.

To achieve these goals, the Education Committee of the national board, in concert with education chairs and leaders from across the Association, have settled upon a four-prong strategy to improve educational achievement for disadvantaged students:

  • Increasing Resource Equity: Target funds to neediest kids

  • Ensuring College & Career Readiness: A path to success after graduation for all students

  • Improving Teaching: Growing our own great teachers now in underserved communities

  • Improving Discipline: Eliminate zero tolerance; keep kids in school* All applied to turnaround schools

Position on Charter Schools
  • In 2016 NAACP National Convention delegates passed, and the National Board affirmed, a resolution calling for a moratorium on the expansion of charter schools. The board subsequently convened a Task Force for Quality Education, which embarked on a national series of hearings to gather data and diverse perspectives on the state of charter schools and their traditional public school counterparts. Read more.

Scholarships
  • Each year the NAACP, through generous donations, is able to provide scholarships to outstanding students.  It is the duty of our dedicated Scholarship Committee to determine the most outstanding individuals to receive these awards.  The NAACP does not provide financial aid to individuals, only scholarships through this process. To apply for NAACP Agnes Jones Jackson Scholarship or Hubertus W. V. Willems Scholarship, go to the POISE Foundation website at:  http://www.poisefoundation.org/naacp-scholarships
