Field Trip Chaperones

Our team is committed to providing a safe and structured environment while campers explore their community. Ideal candidates are committed to supervising and supporting youth during exciting excursions. Our kids look forward to building relationships with you outside the youth center! *Chaperone opportunities are available exclusively to individuals who volunteer within the center as committed classroom assistants)

*Hope for Harvest will cover the cost of trips to the first set of registered chaperones.

Guest Speakers

Guest speakers allow our youth to connect with community members in order to gain a new type of knowledge or experience. If you are passionate and well-versed on a specific topic, such as a career choice, career opportunities for teens, or world events, we would like to invite you to plan a guest speaking event at our youth center. Examples include career talks with passionate professionals, Q&As with military personnel, or informational sessions with nutritionists.

Activity/Clinic Leaders

Similar to guest speakers, activity or clinic leaders bring exciting and educational opportunities to our summer program. This is an excellent option if you have a particular interest in an activity that can physically engage our kids through smaller group sessions! Examples include basketball clinics or coding lessons.

About HOPE FOR HARVEST YOUTH CENTER

Location:

1800 BREWTON DR, CHARLOTTE, NC 28206, US

Mission Statement

Hope For Harvest uses cultural influences and charitable resources to provide essential living items and services for Charlotte’s underserved youth, while providing an escape through music, dance and life development programs.

Description

Hope For Harvest serves as beacon of community advancement for families in the city of Charlotte North Carolina with roots expanding over 40 years. Hope For Harvest first began its start as week-long fundraiser as an effort to fund and continue the services provided by Community Outreach Christian Ministries & The Harvest Kitchen after the passing of our founder’s mother, Pastor Barbara Brewton whom founded COCM. Pastor Barbara Brewton was responsible for feeding over 100,000 families throughout the city of Charlotte, leaving an incredible trail of Hope that still lives on today.

Driven by her late mother’s philanthropic efforts and passion for the helping underserved youth, Catherine Brewton officially founded Hope For Harvest in 2016. Our recently re-dedicated youth center, the Barbara Brewton Hope For Harvest Youth Center, provides free services including after-school programs, tutorial services, nutritional guidance and performing arts programs for the youth in the community.
