As a result of this study a nonpartisan group was commissioned, The Charlotte Mecklenburg Opportunity Task Force and their report identified three determinants most likely to influence the trajectory of an individual life as: Early Care and Education, College and Career Readiness and Child & Family Stability. The report stated, a child's chances of success increases by 60% with a consistent mentor in their life.
