The St. Mary's NAACP will support and encourage our young people to seek higher education and career paths.
Join us February 26 2021.
The best way to get involved is to start with attending a meeting. Learn about the various committees, programs and upcoming events.
Our General Members meeting is held the last Thursday of each month. Visit our Events Page for details.
In 2021, we are continuing our programs for educational empowerment and advocacy and are seeking donations in support of our 9th Annual Southern Maryland HBCU College and Career Fair. The Fair will be virtual and held on February 26, 2021. It is free to participants. Donations will help to fund the cost of the virtual platform, registration fees and our annual Claudia Pickeral scholarship fund.
Students will receive information about college, career and scholarship opportunities. We will also celebrate African American History Month by featuring Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). Local colleges, career representatives, and community support services will be included as well.
This event has been very successful thanks to the generosity of businesses, organizations, and community members. We invite schools in the tri-county area and have had hundreds of students in attendance. Recruiters give out on the spot acceptances to colleges and participants have received scholarship funding for thousands of dollars.
Below and attached are suggested levels of sponsorships. However, all donations and support are appreciated. We are asking that all donations be sent by February 16th. We look forward to having your help to provide students with the information and resources needed to move forward in their careers and success in life.
Level 3 $ 500 & Up (Name recognition during the event, on the website & in the paper)
Level 2 $ 200-400 (Name recognition during the event & on the website)
Level 1 $50-$100 (Name recognition during the event)
