Data suggests that Charlotte is a dead-end for people trying to escape poverty
A Multigenerational Partnership
Public schools are doing exactly what they were designed to do 50 years ago. School systems were built to manufacture workers. Few schools teach how to fish, and even fewer show students how to build a fishing pond of their own. Underpaid teachers and overcrowded classrooms have only compounded this crisis. We come alongside schools, parents, and educators to increase the odds of children moving out of poverty and into a life of freedom and generosity.
Since 2017, we’ve had the opportunity to serve 100s of students like Muhammad. When asked why he wanted to launch a company, he said, “I just want to be able to help my parents.” As a middle schooler, he watched his parents sacrifice and struggle, but he saw entrepreneurship as a way to keep his family afloat. Today, Mohammed is a student entrepreneur who sells merchandise from his online store.
We invite you to share in this opportunity to create more options for the next generation. To help more students like Mohammed, we need more partners on this mission. A mission that ensures that the next tent city will never be built and one that empowers the next generation to solve our nations most difficult problems.
