our mission

The Greenville County Section of the National Council of Negro Women was chartered on September 21, 2019.

Our mission is to lead, advocate for, and empower women of African descent, their families and communities. NCNW was founded in 1935 by Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, an influential educator and activist, and for more than fifty years, the iconic Dr. Dorothy Height was president of NCNW.


Shavon Arline-Bradley was selected President and CEO of NCNW in 2023, ushering in a new era of social activism and continued progress and growth for the organization.

What We Do







Today, NCNW’s programs are grounded on a foundation of critical concerns known as “Four for the Future”.
NCNW promotes education with a special focus on science, technology, engineering and math; encourages entrepreneurship, financial literacy and economic stability; educates women about good health and HIV/AIDS; promotes civic engagement and advocates for sound public policy and social justice.
