CARES Advocates for Families
Parent Mentor Program
To help keep our youth in the classroom, our Parent Mentors work directly in classrooms in the Binghamton City School District alongside teachers and students.
Parent Advocate Program
Are you and your student navigating the disciplinary process and in need of an advocate? Our trained Parent Advocates are available to attend meetings & hearings with you, while providing either emotional support, or education about you and your student's rights.
Our EACH1 TEACH1 Tutoring Program allows 60 students in the Binghamton City School District to receive free virtual tutoring with a Binghamton University college student or a retired teacher!
Inspired by the nationally known "Dads on Duty" program in Louisiana, our CARES DADs volunteer in and around schools in the Binghamton City School District to build rapport and encourage healthy conflict resolution with our youth.
