The Carter Foundation offers a variety of services to assist their mentees academically, behaviorally, emotionally, socially, physically and financially. These services help to ensure that mentees are fully able to perform at their most optimal levels as children and are also fully prepared for adulthood.
Mentees receive after-school academic support in the areas where they are experiencing difficulty.
1:1 Relationship Building & Mentorships
Mentees learn to acquire socially appropriate behaviors in order to form positive relationships with others. Students learn that they can depend on on-site role models for support and relief.
Mentees are exposed to different careers to encourage them to think about life after graduation and to also help them determine their specific interests. Students are eligible to receive scholarships as well as job placement assistance following graduation.
Mentees are taught the foundational skills for becoming upstanding adults, including respect, trustworthiness, compassion, and volunteerism.
In our entrepreneurial workshops, mentees learn the importance of providing value to receive value. In addition to learning how to run a business, students also learn how to be resilient, industrious, and problem-solvers.
Sports & Recreation
Mentees learn that by by adjusting their eating habits and physical activities as youth, they can establish a lifestyle that prevents the onset of health issues as adults.

"I was able to improve my people skills through The Carter Foundation. Public speaking was never my forte ,but TCF taught me step-by-step how to deliver an effective speech and how to carry myself as a successful adult. I will always be thankful for these skills and for the extra mile they go to help their members!"
