Looking to impact future leaders? This is the perfect opportunity for volunteers looking to develop a deep connection with students outside the classroom.

It's an awesome opportunity to work with some amazing kids from around the world as they continue to learn English and general subjects. We need a volunteer to come in and help mentor and guide these students. We are a nonprofit academy dedicated to serving the at risk, refugee, and immigrant population in the Charlotte area. We educate, empower and enrich our students with a tuition free, holistic education addressing the whole child: educationally, nutritionally, emotionally, socially and experientially . If you are available mornings or afternoons to help one to a few days a week we would love to meet you! We are located in East Charlotte.

Where we educate, empower and enrich Charlotte’s refugee, immigrant, underprivileged and at-risk children through a holistic education addressing the whole child: academically, emotionally, socially and experientially to become first-generation graduates. A trauma-informed, holistic approach to education to promote whole healthy youth for tomorrow.


EDUCATE, ENRICH and EMPOWER students through education, a sense of COMMUNITY with LOVE and RESPECT and to encourage them to become confident, educated, accomplished, giving and successful first generation refugee high school graduates. WE HAVE SEEN GREAT SUCCESS! The academy is UNIQUE, it is OUT OF THE BOX and unprecedented. We have created a custom learning environment that is multi age, multi grade and multi faceted. We integrate creative, performing and visual arts, music and rhythm therapy, provide a holistic approach to address the whole child, welcome public speakers in the community to inspire students, offer cutting edge physical, social, emotional training, and many experiential opportunities outside of the classroom, much like those MC personally experienced growing up. Upon graduation, our students are equipped to succeed in America.
