The 3rd Annual Black on Black Crime Solutions Panel

Courage To Believe International, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)3, tax-exempt organization that provides mentoring, educational, enrichment and chess programs for at risk youths and young adults in South Florida communities between the ages of 12 to 21 years. Since 2009, we’ve served over 5,000 students all over Florida. Our goal is to save 50 students from the school-to-prison pipeline each year.

  Our goal is to:
1) Keep our C2B Chess Mentoring Program going. 2) Continue the success of the 3rd Annual Black On Black Crime Solutions Panel on July 16th. 3) Assist students seeking a higher education with our new Queen Rosette Pierre Scholarship. 4) If the prisons can raise billions of dollars a year to send our community members to live in their facilities then we can raise $1,000,000.00 to keep them out. 5) Find a way to pitch in your support of our efforts.
