As a new addition to the curriculum for 2022-2023, The Nest Academy hopes to welcome a large group of volunteers onto campus every Wednesday morning to offer students the opportunity to work and learn from all those willing to share their knowledge, and passion and expertise in a small group setting. This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers who can dedicate at least one hour and half block of time every Friday morning or every other Friday morning for a semester or school year.

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
