What We Do

The Academy of Goal Achievers is a youth leadership mentoring organization that implement programing to improve economic mobility outcomes for high school students and parents in marginalized communities. The mission of our organization is to, “Develop Youth Leaders to Impact Communities, While Helping High School Students and Parents Prepare for Post-Secondary Careers and Educational Options.” We aim to increase economic mobility for low-income, underserved communities and mislabeled high school students, while providing services that allow us to make a two generational impact.

Our core services include, group mentoring, career coaching, cohort skill building classes, parent educational sessions and community base outreach services.

A recent Harvard University/University of California, Berkeley study revealed that of the nation’s largest cities, Charlotte ranked 50th out of 50 in economic mobility. As a result of this study a nonpartisan group was commissioned, the Charlotte Mecklenburg Opportunity Task Force. The 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 and Family Stability. We want to ensure our Goal Achievers are reaching their goals and being productive citizens in society, because they were given information, support through mentors, access to opportunity. We implement two of the three determinations to help with our local community crisis; College and Career Readiness and Child and Family Safety.
