UrbanPromise Charlotte officially wrapped up the AfterSchool Program’s pilot year with a community-wide celebration on May 14th, 2014. Participating and interested youth, parents, teachers, StreetLeaders, Board Members, Partners and friends all joined together for the outdoor event. The evening provided participants and supporters with the chance to reflect on a year of transformations.
The 2013-2014 AfterSchool Program allowed 16 high school StreetLeaders to mentor, tutor, and know 47 lower-school students every week. It provided an accessible option for South Boulevard parents to support their kids educationally, spiritually, and socially. It sparked relationships and dreams amidst students and leaders that won’t just grow deeply, but will affect the community widely.
Though this event celebrated an “end” to its first year, the AfterSchool Program is just beginning to build a life-changing legacy in Charlotte.
