Description

The teens in Charlotte need us more than ever, and Firm Foundations has answered the call to be an IMPACT Player in their lives. We are expecting 2017-2018 to be a year of GREAT impact and because we have this expectation, we are reaching out to you with an invitation to come get and get to know us! A 2014 Harvard-Cal Berkeley study ranked Charlotte 50th out of 50 big cities for economic mobility - what does this mean? Unfortunately it means if you are born poor in Charlotte then you are most likely NOT escape poverty, leaving many of our youth with a sense of hopelessness.

Firm Foundations believes that through our strategic programming, strong mentoring relationships and community involvement we can change this outcome. As we continue our work with pre-teens and teens throughout Charlotte, we are asking you to join us on this #GivingTuesday to learn how you can give your TIME, TALENT and/or TREASURE; because in the midst of all the community needs here in Charlotte, we believe that #TeensMATTER2.

It's time that you see yourself as a remedy to what can be a social epidemic within our city if we do not support our teens with the resources that they need to thrive in society. More than ever, the time is now that we step up and step in the lives of our youth.

Join us Tuesday, November 28th 7pm at the Naomi Drenan Recreation (750 Beal Street) as we share details about our 2017-2018 Teens MATTER 2 Campaign for Teens. Come learn how YOU can get involved!
