Our SVP Investees are gearing up for another exciting year! SVP Charlotte welcomed The ROC (Rebuilding Opportunities in Construction) as its new 2019 Investee, and partners voted to reinvest in ourBRIDGE for KIDS for another two year grant cycle.
The mission of The ROC is to recruit, educate and mentor high school Youth Apprentices in Charlotte, NC for career and technical education (CTE) and employment opportunities in the construction industry. Embedded within this mission is for The ROC to be an integral part of a community-wide upward mobility solution for at-risk minority teenagers.
ourBRIDGE for KIDS continues to offer quality after school and summer programs to newly arrived and first generation students from the East side of Charlotte. Executive Director, Sil Ganzo, was recently featured in Style Blueprint. Read more about it here.
