Mission Statement

"...to inspire hope and promote justice through education, service, and the development of leadership for a more humane world."

Description

Inspired by Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel's 1997 visit to Charlotte, The Echo Foundation, a 501c3, creates programs that infuse in young people a sense of personal responsibility and social justice through education. Through cutting-edge educational programs, The Echo Foundation develops in young people the moral and intellectual tools necessary to effect positive change in their local and global communities. Echo initiatives use the power of example to inspire action on critical issues of human rights and social justice. Experiential learning opportunities, programs using the arts in service to humankind and facilitated dialogue in the pursuit of innovative solutions are hallmarks of the organization. Each year, The Echo Foundation brings world-renowned humanitarians to Charlotte to deliver messages that galvanize souls to action on behalf of humankind.

We do this so that we may help build a city that embraces racial diversity, culture and tolerance. We bring together people from all corners of the region to act on their highest principles through student dialogues, teacher workshops, musical programs, art and writing projects, and more. The Echo Foundation is a nonprofit education foundation for humanity, with an International Board of Advisors and governed by a Charlotte Board of Trustees.
