    The Sacramento Black Child Development Institute is an affiliate organization of the National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI); A non-profit organization located in Washington, D.C.  As an affiliate, we carry out the mission of NBCDI which is to “Improve and advance the quality of life for Black children and families through advocacy and education”.    We are one of 26 affiliate chapters in cities across the nation that work at the community level to provide services to families, schools, child care centers and community centers.

    We are a non-profit organization with a diverse membership of people who are interested in improving the conditions of children and their families in Sacramento County.  We volunteer our time, talents and resources to provide education, information and resources to families.  Our signature programs are “Entering the College Zone” which is a one day event that provides support and resources to middle school students and their parents.  We also hold a yearly conference for girls ages 12- 18 called Determined, Intelligent, Valued, American Young Ladies (DIVA) conference.  Please go to our program tab for more information on these and other programs.
