YOUTH & COLLEGE DIVISION
The mission of the NAACP Youth & College Division shall be to inform youth of the problems affecting African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities; to advance the economic, educational, social, and political status of African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities and their harmonious cooperation with other peoples; to stimulate an appreciation of the African Diaspora and other people of color’s contribution to civilization; and to develop an intelligent, militant effective youth leadership.
A Message from Our President
Since 1909, The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has been a leader in the fight against discriminatory practice, social justice, and economic equality for black and brown people. I have been a member since 1988, and am now a lifetime member which expresses my belief in the fight. Membership shows a commitment to be a part of the solution—bigger than one person or group with the agreement to work toward a greater good. The members of the NAACP reason together to develop resolutions and develop strategies to move the cause for racial equality for all. I welcome you to read the history, review the cases, and investigate the past and present leaders. Within the NAACP you will find a true heart to serve the community. The West Volusia NAACP looks forward to working with the members and the community to further progress in America and beyond.
Sean King, President
