Keep Kids in School


Missed the school bus; stayed up too late overslept; no one got me up; didn't stay at my house last night; no way to get to school; our car broke down; we were out of town; mom got a new job and isn't home in the mornings, angry with the school; angry with the teacher; afraid of a student; don’t understand the work; have something else I would rather be doing; unaddressed medical needs; vacation; just don’t like school; they don’t like me…..

Keep Kids Learning


Virtual learning is hard for many students.  Headphones can help students focus.  Students can mute to help others learn but often can’t control noise in their home.  Teachers that zoom with students know who could use this support.  Join our effort to keep students learning.  We hope to provide headphones to students referred by their teacher as in need of this support before end of school testing starts.  Donate today!  


Thank you Walmart Callabridge and Albemarle road for helping us to make sure the youth we serve have food.   It’s hard to think about learning if you are hungry.

Thank you Ross Stores for your support.  It takes a village.

Thank you City of Charlotte for partnering with us as we work to keep youth educationally connected and learning.

"Keep Kids Learning" Headphones needed for virtual learning






"A Big Thank You" to our supporters.  We could not do this needed work without you!                                            

Keep Kids Learning

While CMS and our state representatives are planning how to safely educate our youth parents must also be planning.  More than ever before parents must stay connected to their child’s school.  Schools are creating educational resources and material.  Parents must stay connected to their child’s school in order to utilize what is being put in place to keep their youth learning.
