Mayors Mentoring Alliance + Behailu

Our students had so much fun volunteering as ushers for the pirate - themed Mayors Mentoring Alliance event this past week.

We're proud to announce one of our teachers, Colleen Murphy, was nominated as Mentor of the Year.

Drumroll please -- we're especially excited to announce and celebrate our very own Maurice Atkins on winning Charlotte's Mentee of the Year! Maurice worked hard this year on helping create a paid graphic design internship at the company B-Stock with his mentor. He doesn't allow anything to hold him back and we're excited to see where he goes!

A great night, a great event, with a great outcome!

Meals, Minds, and Movement

Can you include the description: Meals, Minds, and Movement is a year long series of conversations designed to build community though increasing understanding. The project is open to all teens (14 years and older) and adults. We will come together monthly to share a meal and our perspectives about a "tough to talk about" issue in an effort to learn and grow from each other. The project will culminate in a community created mural on a large stretch of fence on Matheson Avenue donated generously by a neighbor. Please join us for one or all! RSVP to to confirm attendance or with questions.
