What We Do

At Raise a Child of the Carolinas, we believe that children are the very essence of the future. We use a village approach and integrate various educational programs to expose youth to opportunities that are underrepresented in their communities thus empowering them to reach their full potential.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How We Are Impacted:
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 are offering free online and/or phone tutoring.

How You Can Help - Specific Volunteer Needs:
We are in need of bilingual tutors to serve students in the Charotte community. In addition, we have other remote volunteer opportunities available. Learn more under "Volunteer Opportunities" below.

Financial Donation Requested: We are always in need of monetary donations to impact those we serve. Please consider giving generously.

Interesting Info

We served over 30 children within the first 4 months of launching.
High-quality OST programs can improve children’s social skills, behavior management, and improve academic skills and engagement in school.
Our biggest goal is to open a community center that will house our programs and serve as a venue for other community based organizations.
