For four years, DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. has been dedicated to providing quality mentoring services for high school students in North Philadelphia. Our many programs serve our community full circle, from working one-on-one with high school students to fighting food insecurity and prepping students for job placement, we take pride in the dedication of our mentors, community partners, donors, and volunteers to make this happen. 
In September 2015, I founded DonCARES in attempt to give back to my North Philadelphia community. I never knew it would be such a successful attempt! Here at DonCARES, our mentors come from many different backgrounds but all have a similar passion and that is to mentor youth and give back to our communities. I wish you the best in your endeavors and I hope to see you at some of our programs during the 2019-2020 school year. Always remember that even if you don't mentor for our organization you can still be someone who matters to someone who matters.
All The Best,
Donovan W. Forrest
