What We Do

Raise a Child of the Carolinas is an organization built on the constructs of diversity and inclusion. The organization believes that children are the very essence of the future; who they are tomorrow is essentially the outcome of how they are raised and nurtured today.

By taking great pride in transcending the barriers of race and ethnicity to empower and inspire children of the Charlotte community, the organization uses a village approach and integrates lessons in Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math (S.T.R.E.A.M) to expose K-12 youth to educational opportunities that are underrepresented in their communities thus combating social injustice and empowering them to reach their full potential.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

Financial Donation Requested: As we quickly grow and transition to meet the demands of the community, we are in need of monetary donations or items from our wish list to continue impacting those we serve. Our center offers remote learning support and afterschool care for essential workers and families.

Your donations will help to cover tuition costs, safety supplies, as well as purchase program material so that we can continue to educate and engage students during these uncertain times. Please consider giving generously.

Specific Volunteer Needs:
You can also help by joining one of our committees. There are several volunteer opportunities available. Learn more under "Volunteer Opportunities."
