Playing For Others

PFO (Playing for Others) is a leadership training program that combines personal development, service and the arts to foster leaders who are confident, compassionate and creative.

Each year, our 9-month program brings together a diverse group of teens from across Charlotte to experience opportunities for learning, growth and personal transformation – not to mention dance parties, team competitions and a ton of fun.

PFO’s model for leadership training is rooted in our belief that personal development and self-awareness are key. Through building relationships with others who are different than we are, learning how to build a strong community and culture, expanding our comfort zones, and growing our confidence, we can become strong leaders of self and others.

Reading Partners

Reading Partners is a national nonprofit that mobilizes communities to provide students with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade.

We know that reading is the foundation for all future learning. The ability to read transforms lives and empowers children and communities to reach their full potential. Research shows that students who read at grade level by fourth grade have a greater opportunity to succeed in school and beyond.

That’s why we partner with under-resourced schools and engage volunteer reading partners to work one-on-one with students who struggle with reading. Our volunteers provide hour-long tutoring sessions to students— following a structured, evidence-based curriculum developed with an expert team of curriculum advisors.
