What We Do

At Raise a Child of the Carolinas is an organization built on the constructs of diversity and inclusion. We believe that children are the very essence of the future, and we take great pride in transcending the barriers of race and ethnicity to empower and inspire the children
of our communities.. We use a village approach and integrate various educational programs to expose youth to opportunities that are underrepresented in their communities thus combating racial inequality and empowering them to reach their full potential.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted:
99% of our participants are from the Black Community, and while Raise a Child wants to offer out-of-school services for youth in need, the constant evolving changes of Covid-19 has prevented us from hosting students in-person. As a result, we have moved some programs online.

How You Can Help - Specific Volunteer Needs:
Our organization is quickly growing to meet the demand of community needs and you can help by joining one of our committees. There are several remote volunteer opportunities available. Learn more under "Volunteer Opportunities" below.

Financial Donation Requested: COVID-19 is preventing us from providing in person programs which generate 90% of our revenue. As a result, we are in need of monetary donations to continue impacting those we serve. Your donations will help us to upgrade our physical location and technology infrastructure so that we can continue to educate and engage students during these uncertain times, as well as help to keep our program operable until we are able to open our doors again. Please consider giving generously. Thank you for being part of our village.
