Our Mission

We are breaking economic mobility barriers in the greater Charlotte area! In the US, 33% of recent high school graduates are either unemployed or unable to find full-time jobs. We believe that every motivated young adult should have an equal opportunity to develop professional skills and move up the economic ladder – even if college isn’t an option.
