The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. - MECCA Chapter (NCBW-MECCA) is dedicated to advocating for African American women and girls in Education, Health,and Economic Empowerment.  NCBW-MECCA advocates for and implements programs that expand educational opportunities for girls in grades 8 through 10 through a bi- weekly program that includes training in nutrition, career choices, personal relationships, STEM, civic engagenent, financial literacy, and the legal system.  All classes in this program, the Little Ladies of MECCA are taught by subject matter professionals who volunteer their time and talents.  Upon graduation from high school, each participant is awarded a $5,000 scholarship.  With role-modeling, mentoring, education, and scholarships, we strive to help our girls grow into strong contributors to their communities.  

Other NCBW-MECCA primary programs include Health symposiums and fairs that include testing and guidance for seeking treatment related to cancer, HIV/Aids, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Our Economic Empowerment projects include seminars and training related to entrepreneurship, home-buying, investments, and many other aspects of financial literacy.  

NCBW-MECCA advocates on public policy issues in the areas described above by working with elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Our advocacy work includes discussions, writing letters and white papers, speaking to legislative bodies, voter registration, and presenting political forums.

Our motto is "Educate, Advocate, Reach".  For more information about the dynamic work of NCBW-MECCA or its LLM Program, visit www.nc100bwmeccaga.org. Please contact us at info@nc100bwmeccaga.org.
